PENDLE Heritage Centre, the museum and visitor centre, dedicated to the area's history, is celebrating its 40th birthday this year.

Founded in 1977, we've turned the clock back to 1992 today, to feature some young visitors who who went to say hello to Katie the donkey in her pen in the old cruck barn.

They were told all about their new four legged friend by farmer-in-charge, James Begley.

The barn is not one of the original buildings that once stood on the centre's site in Barrowford - it came from Cliviger.

In 1983, this ancient cruck barn was carefully taken apart timber by timber and transported to Barrowford by lorry and re-built, using natural.

The heritage centre itself, however, occupies Park Hill, a medieval farmhouse, which is believed to have first been built in the 15th century and developed over the next 300 years.

Restored using traditional building techniques, its museum tells the story of the ancient Bannister family, which farmed there; a family who includes Sir Roger Bannister, the first athlete to run a sub four minute mile.
