Brierfield Mill 



The iconic Brierfield Mill is a former textile mill that has been derelict for 10 years. 



The site was once the hub of the community, employing thousands of local people and is a well known historical feature of the East Lancashire landscape.

Opening 2018


Work on Burnley FC in the Community’s brand new leisure and education facility (the Northlight Development at the iconic Brierfield Mill) started back in September 2016.


With an anticipated opening month of April 2018, this state of the art facility will primarily serve each part of the communities in Burnley and Pendle, but will also have a wider reach across East Lancashire and West Yorkshire.

Work has started!


The site is being developed by Burnley FC in the Community working in close partnership with PEARL, Barnfield Construction, Pendle Borough Council and the Sutton Pendle Charitable Trust. 


What will the facility include?


Based in the former mill warehouse, this development will be a flagship facility for the community and will offer something for everyone including indoor and outdoor 3G football pitches, a huge sports hall, indoor cricket lanes, scope for birthday parties, a dance studio, a café, classrooms, a gym and the latest innovation in indoor climbing… Clip ‘n’ climb!
