My visit to The Empress Centre in Lancashire

Some of you will already know that on Monday I went to visit Empress Mills only to discover that they had moved (note to self do not rely on Google maps).  So today hubby took me to find where Empress Mills had moved to.  For those of you who are unaware of their new location they can be found at The Empress Centre, Glyde Works, Byron Road, Colne in Lancashire BB8 0BQ.  As it happens they have only moved ¼ of a mile from their previous location.

There is a car park at the back of the building and I have to say their amenities are very clean indeed. My husband Andrew confirmed that the gents are just as impressive as the ladies.

The Empress Centre has a fabric section, a haberdashery section and row upon rows of wool, embroidery, sewing and over locking thread; there is even a small café where you can take the weight off your feet and just enjoy the atmosphere. I would say it’s well worth a visit if you don’t mind your bank balance taking a hit, as you won’t be able to resist filling your basket with all of their goodies.
