On Thursday 17th November we were very happy to provide refreshments for members of the public who had taken part in Bacup’s first ever  Owd Bacup Crime Walk. The walk had been produced and carried out by our local community police officer P.C.Neil Gregson a very big well done from the Bacup Natural History Committee. 

News & Events  2014

Fern Hill Hospital Project

Our main news and project for 2014 was the creation of a diroma representing number 1 ward at Fern Hill Hospital, Stacksteads. Funded by winning  a Heritage Lottery bid for which we recieved the fantastic news in July. Following our succesful HLF bid for a World War 1 Then and Now bid, we began work in August 2014, on converting what was once the back yard of the building which many people know was the Hare and Hounds Pub. The area had once been  open to the elements but was covered over some years ago.
