Yorkshire Day at Earby
Yorkshire Day at Earby
It's the First of August, Yorkshire Day, and the Yorkshire flag is flying outside the Council Shop, reminding people that for over 900 years, Earby was a town in Yorkshire. But in 1974, faceless idiots in London decided that the County Boundary between Lancashire and Yorkshire should be altered, so the town found itself to be part of the Borough of Pendle, Lancashire. No official referendum was held about this although an unofficial one showed a large majority wished the town to remain as part of Yorkshire. A small concession is the display of the White Rose flag.
Meanwhile a Transdev single-deck bus leaves for Burnley on Route 28.
