MARSDEN, LITTLE, a '''chapelry''', in the parochial chapelry of Colne, parish of Whalley, union o fBurnley, Higher division of the hundred of Blackburn, N. division of Lancashire, 3 miles ( N. N. E.)from Burnley. <ref>Samuel A. Lewis , [http://british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=51135#s19 ''A Topographical Dictionary of England (1848), pp. 260-263.''] Date accessed: 30 September 2013.</ref>
  
The Diocese of Blackburn is a Church of England diocese, covering much of Lancashire, created in 1926 from part of the Diocese of Manchester. The Diocese includes the towns of Blackburn, Blackpool, Burnley, and the cities of Lancaster, and Preston, as well as a large part of the Ribble Valley.<br>
+
The town was originally two villages, Little Marsden and Great Marsden. A small mill had been established by the Ecroyd family at Edge End as early as 1740, and there were two coal mines nearby, but it was the coming of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal in 1796, followed by the East Lancashire Railway in 1849, that spurred its development as an industrial town, with an economy based mainly upon cotton weaving.<br>
