Blackburn Royal Infirmary

William Pilkington became Blackburn's fifth mayor in November, 1856, an honour he acknowledged by announcing his intention to create an infirmary, a project he inaugurated with a 2,000 donation towards the building fund together with an endowment of 100 a year. The foundation stone of the Blackburn Infirmary was laid in May 1858 and the building completed six years later.
