Blakewater Road in December 2002.

Blakewater Road is found at Whitebirk, leading to the former B and Q DIY centre in Blackburn, and into one of Blackburn's many industrial estates.

This is now the location for Westwood Garage, Rishton Mercedes Benz dealer, which can be seen on the left of this picture, and was formally based on the junction of Harwood road and High Street, in the location of the toilets and school building.

This was once part of Whitebirk Drive, the main arterial road surrounding Blackburn, until the road was improved in the 1990's with the construction of the M65 motorway.

The road carried straight on, and lead to the red lion hotel at Whitebirk, which is just visible in the picture in the distance.
