Although we live near Horwich we didn’t know this place was here,we found it advertised in a leaflet we picked up it’s free to visit and it’s open 2pm till 4pm in the week.The lady who was there was very friendly.The place as lots of artefacts from WW1 and WW2 and stories of soldiers from Horwich and what happened to them.Then how Horwich was through the ages fascinating place we will come back again as we haven’t seen it all.

I've lived in Horwich all my life and this is only the second time I've been to the heritage centre.
It's a fascinating place and the staff are really knowledgeable about our historic town.
Definitely well worth a visit.

I went for some particular information but ended up browsing. They have some lovely displays and very friendly staff who if they don't know the answer, know a man who does.

A trip down memory lane

I grew up in Horwich and visited this centre on a recent visit. I can't recommend it highly enough, the small room was filled with exhibits of Horwich and surrounding areas. The enthusiastic volunteers were a delight to listen to as we moved around the room.
