Appeal for help in Towneley Park history survey
12:53pm Thursday 21st March 2013 in News
FRIENDS of Towneley Park are continuing a detailed survey of the history of the park and are asking for help in researching from local people and groups.
A research workshop took place last month and the group is running monthly ‘getting together’ meetings to share information and experiences.
This part of the project will culminate in the production of an information leaflet and history trail and a celebratory history walk in next year.
The Friends have also received Heritage Lottery Funding to reinstate the Bird Bath Fountain in the Italian Garden and replace two bronze deer last seen there in the 1960s.
Towneley Hall not only contains the 15th Century Whalley Abbey vestments, but also has its own chapel, with a finely carved altarpiece made in Antwerp around 1525.
The hall was the home of the Towneley family for more than 500 years.
Anyone wanting more information or to become involved with the group can contact Susan Barker on 01282 423016 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
