We also have a museum shop, where you can buy a number of interesting publications and souvenirs, covering both local history and other topics.

Amongst the current range of popular titles and best sellers is Mike Rothwell's excellent 'Whitworth's Industrial Heritage', which is now back in stock again. This is an A4 sized publication, covering many of the valley's former factories, mines and quarries. This publication is available from the shop whenever the museum is open, along with our newly reprinted copies of 'Cowm The Valley That Died' by Joan Douglas, 'Whitworth Doctors' by Patricia Chisnall, and 'The Bacup Branch' by Tom Wray, 'Hallfold Congregational Chapel' by R.C. Scott B.A., and the newly reprinted 'Healey Dell' by Philip Blackshaw  New. All can be bought or ordered from the museum shop.




LATEST TITLES - NOW IN STOCK



WHITWORTH STATION TO REOPEN?

Sadly no, but wouldn't it be great if it was. You can however have your very own replica Whitworth Station 'totem' fridge magnet, as we now have some of these for sale in the museum shop, along with others for Broadley, Facit, Shawforth, Britannia and Bacup Stations, and even further south to Shawclough & Broadley, Wardleworth and Rochdale Station. In fact you can now own your very own collection of all stations on the Bacup Branch Line if you should wish. Selling like the proverbial 'hot cakes', come along and get yours before they're all gone.



Christmas may only just be over, but it's never too early to start thinking about the next one, so if you are one of those very well organised people who like to plan ahead, then one of our unique 'Whitworth' themed Christmas Cards, just the ticket for sending to friends and relatives outside the area. You can find a nice selection of these in the museum shop.
