Welcome

The Whitworth Historical Society &

Heritage Museum

The Whitworth Historical Society is located at the Whitworth Heritage Museum on North Street, Whitworth, which is in the borough of Rossendale in East Lancashire. Following the Covid lockdowns, the museum reopened to the public on Saturday 5th of June 2021, and since then our opening hours have been from 11am to 4pm on Saturdays only. The society also operates a very popular programme of monthly lectures, and these are usually held on the first Wednesday of each month between the months of September and June, but for the 2021-22 season they will be held at the Hallfold URC so please do be sure to check our ‘Lectures’ or ‘News’ pages for any updates about the current situation before travelling, as things may have to be changed at short notice if the current situation should worsen once again. We are always happy to hear from anyone with any artifacts or photographs relating to Whitworth, which we might be able to add to our collection or make copies of, but due to lack of storage space we can't usually take items that don't have any sort of link with the area. If you have anything you might like to donate or loan please do get in touch with us, we'd love to hear from you. You can find out how to contact us via our 'contact' page.
