Company Bio

Finsley Gate Wharf is one of the original wharves on the longest manmade waterway in Britain, The
Leeds to Liverpool Canal. Opened in 1801, Mile Wharf, as it was then locally known, was instrumental in
creating the industrial boom that took place in the North, ultimately making Burnley one of the world’s
largest producers of cotton cloth in the mid 1860s.
Established in 1784, the heritage buildings were a central point for the Industrial Revolution once the
Burnley Canal became fully operational in 1810.
These Grade II listed buildings have been restored in an incredible regeneration project thanks to the
generosity of The National Heritage Lottery Fund and the European Regional Development Fund.
In conjunction with the Canal & River Trust this beautiful space is here to support the local economy,
biodiversity, provide a multi faceted hub for the local community and create employment in hospitality.
Saved from dereliction, the three buildings on the site comprising The Forge, The Turnbridge House and
The Warehouse will once again become vibrant, animated and central to community life in Burnley!
With its canal-side café, stunning bar and rustically designed restaurant the historic buildings will be
home to mouthwatering food & drink, staged entertainment and provide space for wedding ceremonies,
celebrations, special occasion gatherings and business use alike.
