Young people from Clayton-le-Moors Youth and Community Centre and a group of BMX riders from Preston

This week’s Time Trip feature takes a look back at what was happening in Clayton-le-Moors and Baxenden eight years ago.

We are showcasing a selection of pictures from 2010. We have shots from Baxenden Golf Club, a skate park festival, Accrington Library and The Albion Inn, all of which were taken in that year.

Our first picture of the week shows a group of young people from Clayton-le-Moors Youth and Community Centre together with BMX riders from Preston.

They worked with professional artists to host a festival, Urban Culture Jam, at Accrington Skate Park in August 2010.
