Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on March 25, 1892.

The fess and lower part of the arms show symbols of the town's industry - a weaving shuttle, a cogwheel, a miner's pick and spade and a length of chain. The top of the shield has features from the arms of local families and the red rose of Lancashire.

The dove in the crest is holding a branch of hazel, in reference to the town's name.
