Town's history to be celebrated at Barnoldswick Heritage Day
8:00am Wednesday 4th September 2013 in News
Barlickers will be celebrating their history at the second Barnoldswick Heritage Day.
The town square marquee will host a series of audio visual presentations featuring Barnoldswick’s past put together by the town council.
“Last year’s event was a great success,” said town council chairman Coun Ken Hartley. “This year, we’re concentrating on video and digital images of our heritage.”
The heritage exhibition will take place on Saturday, between 10am and 4pm.
The day will also include the town’s second annual Ginnel Gather, when walkers are encouraged to walk the town’s alleys, ginnels and snickets.
Coun David Whipp has put together a new route of Barnoldswick’s by-ways and backwaters.
“Apart from a single short section, this year’s route is completely different to last year’s inaugural event and will take walkers around Barnoldswick’s hidden corners,” he said. “Pamphlets with the Ginnel Gather route will be available at the heritage exhibition.”
The heritage events will be followed on Sunday by the re-dedication of the town’s war memorial, when the Freedom of the Town will be conferred on the Yorkshire Regiment. The regimental band will play on the square from 2pm.
Anyone with digital material for the Heritage Day exhibition can contact Coun Hartley on 01282 817535 or email email@example.com
