Queen Street Mill Textile Museum has been named 'best tour' by the Association for Industrial Archaeology (AIA).

Lancashire Museum's popular 19th century tourist attraction in Harle Syke, Burnley, beat off tough competition from other local attractions such as Blackpool Tower, Lancaster City and Glasson Dock and The World of Glass.

The Association for Industrial Archaeology (AIA) is the international member organisation for people and professional bodies who promote and share an interest in Britain's industrial past.

The AIA's annual conference this year was held in Preston at the University of Central Lancashire where over a hundred delegates attended.

Delegates were invited to visit a number of museums and heritage sites across Lancashire and vote for their favourite tour.

The member's vote was then considered by the AIA Council and Chairman, who announced Queen Street Mill as the overall winner. This is the second award the Museum has won this year.

In June, they were awarded a Highly Commended for their entry into the Small Tourist Attraction of the Year award from the Lancashire and Blackpool Tourist Board.

Queen Street Mill is the worlds only surviving 19th century steam powered weaving mill, bringing history to life with all the sights, sounds and smells of the mill.

In 2004, the museum was used as a location for the popular BBC TV drama and adaptation of Elizabeth Gaskell's "North and South" set in the 1850s.
