Brierfield is a small town and civil parish in the Borough of Pendle Lancashire, England. It is 2.5mi north east of Burnley, 1mi south west of Nelson, and 0.5mi north east of Reedley. It has a population of 8,200.HistoryThe building of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, the Blackburn to Addingham turnpike road and the railway from Preston to Colne led to the town developing during the early 19th century. Before the new transport links were constructed, the town was just a scattering of farmhouses forming part of the township of Little Marsden, which also covered a large part of what was to become Nelson. The construction of the first cotton mill in 1832 off Lob Lane (now Clitheroe Road) close to the Marsden coal pit, led to the massive growth of the settlement during the mid-19th century. New mills were established along the banks of the canal and people flocked to the area to work in the cotton industry, many coming from the lead mining areas of the North Riding of Yorkshire as the lead seams were worked out. The cotton industry continued to be the main employer until well into the 1960s, and in 2006 that BSN (formerly Smith & Nephew) ceased production of woven cloth at Brierfield Mills. After years of disuse, Pendle Council purchased the mills in 2012, intending to use it as a flagship regeneration project.
