Current Exhibition – “Chorley’s Commercial Past”

“Chorley’s Commercial Past” has been added to the permanent “History of Chorley” exhibition in the Chorley Heritage Centre. The exhibition focuses on Chorley’s businesses of the past – particularly the shops and cinemas that were located in the town’s main streets. Come and remind yourself of how the town looked even a few years ago. Photographs of people and places, bill headings, research, memorabilia and transcriptions of oral history recordings are all on display. The Chorley Heritage Centre in Astley Hall Farmhouse is open on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays and at weekends from 12 noon - 3.30 p.m. The Chorley Heritage Centre is indebted to Chorley Council for its present home, but: * The upstairs gallery of Astley Hall Farmhouse is not accessible to all visitors because there is no disabled access. * There is no storage for the Heritage Centre’s growing collections of resources important to Chorley. * At some point, the Farmhouse may be required for other Council purposes; therefore the Committee continues to look for permanent premises. If Chorley’s heritage is important to you, come and visit us – and if you have children and grandchildren bring them along with you. The Heritage Centre welcomes new interest, support and active membership. Please make a contact through this website or pick up a leaflet and a membership form in the Heritage Centre. Join us and get involved!
