The Friends of Pendle Heritage have held a successful open museum event where visitors could explore centuries of the borough’s rich history.

Free guided tours of the museum were enjoyed by many from as far away as Ilkley and London.

In the run up to Lancashire Day, the Real Lancashire Society was on hand for people wishing to learn about the Red Rose county.

And the society was joined by others including the Earby and District Local History Society, The Leeds and Liverpool Canal Society, the Pendle and Burnley Branch of Lancashire Family History and Heraldry Society plus the local branch of the U3A to promote local history and provide relevant information about their group.

Visitors were excellently entertained by The Palatine Fiddlers and The Tin Pot Poets and Lancashire themed food was available throughout the day.

Pam Worrell said: “It was great to see so many enthusiastic faces, hopefully spreading the word about this wonderful Pendle destination.”
