Burnley's Queen Street Mill's role in The King's Speech


A historic mill in Lancashire has a major role in the Oscar tipped film The King's Speech.

The Queen Street Mill, at Briercliffe near Burnley, was used as a location for the film about how King George VI overcame a debilitating stammer after his surprise ascension to the throne.

And some of the staff were given parts in the film alongside Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter, Michael Gambon and Guy Pearce.
