Consisting of artwork from the Astley Hall collection, items loaned by relatives and the priceless local military collection of historian and trustee Stuart Clewlow, the artefacts all relate to World War One and specifically to local service personnel.

Anyone with an interest in their heritage and the involvement of the community during the conflict should make the exhibition top of a list of places to visit before its anticipated closure at the end of the year. Seeing the value of the exhibition to the community, local film makers ThinkFILM have produced a promotional video to support "Chorley 100" and can be viewed her

The exhibition is open every Saturday and Sunday from noon until 4.30pm and during school holidays with the addition of Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Entry is free.
