Welcome again to our Time-trip column.

Each week we will publish a set of pictures taken by our photographers which appeared in the paper in the 2000s.

The pictures appear first on our website and are then reprinted in the paper.

This week our photos show locals in the Bridge Pub, Accrington, and the Conchord Singers entertaining at St Paul’s Church in the town.

There is also a picture of Accrington Iceland open day and another of

Oliver Nesbitt (right) celebrating his 10th birthday with a limousine ride to Accrington Superbowl.

They were all taken in the early 2000s.

If you have any pictures you would like us to feature in the column, please send them to us at or via the Accrington Observer Facebook page.
