Irlam Station and Heritage Hub (M44 5ZR)

The 2-hour tour is designed to introduce the history of Irlam and Cadishead and how the area grew during the Industrial Revolution; the social impact and also how Irlam Station has been regenerated.  It will start prompt at 1.30 and we suggest that we meet in the cafe well before 1pm to partake of refreshments.

Donations are welcomed by the Friends of Irlam Station.

Guided tour of the Peter Scott Gallery at Lancaster University (Pilkington collection).

The visit will begin by looking at the displays in the John Chambers Ceramics room, and we’ll introduce some key themes, and explain the logic of the recent redisplay. Friends will then have time to look around individually.

The visit will continue in the Manton Room, our collections study room. Here we can look at some of the more archival material, including original drawings and designs, photography, emphemera etc, and also potentially handle some objects.
