Encouraged by the interest shown in their 2013 exhibition ‘An A to Z of Longridge’, volunteers of Longridge Heritage Centre have extended their research and produced a book as a lasting record of historical and present day Longridge.

This has been a labour of love involving many of the volunteers spending hours researching different aspects of the town’s history, resulting in the new book ‘Our heritage – Longridge past and present.’

All the interestings facts and details are laid out between the covers of the book, which is to be launched this coming Saturday, November 21, at the Old Station Building from 11am until 1pm.

All are welcome, light refreshments will be available and the book will be on sale at £12 per copy, or take advantage of the special Christmas offer of two copies for £20.
