Men In White In Blackburn
The Men In White were out and about in East Lancashire today and stopped to chat about tripe to the good folk of Blackburn and Accrington. They received a warm East Lancashire welcome from Blackburn Market tripe stall holders Mrs Oakshott and Leanne and the very nice lady who runs the tripe stall on Accrington Market. We are delighted to report that both have experienced an increase in sales following recent coverage of tripe in the local and national media. The Men In White popped into the Abbey Friar - the best chippy in Accrington- for a spot of lunch and although there was no tripe on the menu they enjoyed a delicious meal. Unfortunately, a rendezvous with a photographer from the Accrington Observer did not materialize. Don't worry if you missed them today. They’ll be coming back to East Lancashire very soon. And if you're wondering where you can buy Forgotten Lancashire And Parts Of Cheshire And The Wirral in East Lancashire, it's now available in WH Smith in Accrington.
