Colne may be a small town, but the number and variety of services businesses is mindboggling. As well as all the accountants, solicitors and architects, there are numerous estate agents and lettings businesses. The bottom of town is where to head if something is clunking in your motor, with Grahams of Colne, Colne Tyre Centre and Crown Garage all sitting adjacent to each other.
If romance is leading you down the aisle, then Colne has two of the best known outlets in the business – the eponymous Emma Hartley has won numerous awards, while Ava Rose Hamilton’s emporium stars in the cult television show, “Say Yes to the Dress”.
Colne is certainly full of surprises.
