I am told Monk Holme was located at Briercliffe, but I cannot find a mention of it in books or on the internet. Was it nearby to Monk Hall? http://www.briercliffesociety.co.uk/Pho ... 0Holme.htm

It was down Robinson Lane, off Colne Rd in Reedley.

I should know, I was born there !!!! It was a 'Nursing Home' in 1944, what we would call at least a little later a 'Maternity Home'.

Over the railway bridge, then past Reedley Nurseries and over the canal bridge and you are there. It is listed as Nelson in those days :( :( :( :(
I don't care, I'm Burnley born and support the Clarets, they moved the boundries,I'm sure the wing of the house I was born in was just in Burnley. :roll:

I too was born at Monk Holme. My birth certificate states that it is in Reedley Hallows but my sister's certificate says Brierfield.

Does anyone have a photo of the now-demolished Monkholme Nursing Home?
An elderly ancestor died there in 1940.
