Welcome to Chorley Heritage Centre

Please feel free to browse the site and see the latest news items for the Heritage Centre, which also includes details of forthcoming events.

 

The Heritage Group is always looking to the future to decide what aspect of the town’s heritage to display next in the Astley Farmhouse. The topics
we choose very much depend upon the material we can gather together and this is to some extent dictated by what the citizens of Chorley can provide for us. Of course the exhibition team carries out a great deal of research but we also need your input.
 

If you have any suggestions as to what you would like to see please contact us at the Farmhouse or the editoriall email paulturner836@btinternet.com.
