Burnley is a town in Lancashire, England, situated at the confluence of the River Calder and River Brun. The town is located near the countryside to the south and east. It has a reputation as a regional centre of excellence for the manufacturing and aerospace industries. The town began to develop in the early medieval period as a number of farming hamlets surrounded by manor houses and royal forests, and has held a market for more than 700 years. During the Industrial Revolution it became one of Lancashire's most prominent mill towns; at its peak, it was one of the world's largest producers of cotton cloth and a major centre of engineering. Burnley has retained a strong manufacturing sector, and has strong economic links with the cities of Manchester and Leeds, as well as neighbouring towns along the M65 corridor. In 2013, in recognition of its success, Burnley received an Enterprising Britain award from the UK Government, for being the "Most Enterprising Area in the UK". A direct train service operates between the town's Manchester Road railway station and Manchester's Victoria station.
Burnley has a population of over 125,000 people. Burnley also forms part of the wider Blackburn-Burnley metropolitan area which has a population of over 391,000 people.
