Buckshaw Then and Now

The next exhibition at Chorley Heritage Centre, Astley Hall Farmhouse will focus on Buckshaw Then and Now. It will follow the development of the Buckshaw area through its farming past and its use as the site of the Royal Ordnance factory to the present Buckshaw Village. The exhibition will feature an art and history project, work done by Year 5 children of Buckshaw Trinity C of E/Methodist School. Artist Martin O'Connor and members of the Chorley Heritage Group have assisted with the project. The Heritage Group has appreciated the opportunity to work with the school, and the enormous amount of work done by the staff and the children in bringing the project to life. The exhibition will run from May 14th - late September 2016. Opening times are from 12 noon - 3.30 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays, and also on Fridays and at weekends when other exhibitions are held in the lower gallery of the farmhouse. There is no charge, but donations are welcome. During May, there is also a small display in the foyer of Chorley Library.
