Prince Charles in visit to Weavers' Triangle, Burnley


The Prince of Wales has visited Lancashire to see first-hand how his charities have contributed to its regeneration.

He visited Sandygate Square in the Weavers' Triangle, a derelict area that has been renovated by young people from The Princes' Trust.

He then went on to Slaters Terrace, a derelict canalside building, and Victoria Mill, which is currently undergoing restoration and will be part of a new technical college

In a speech made during his visit, the prince thanked everyone involved for their "interest, enthusiasm and support" and said: "I hope we can continue to work together in Burnley and this model of working collaboratively could be used in other deprived areas of the country."
