A special exhibition commemorating the events of World War I is on show in Marsden.

The Marsden Remembers Exhibition, which was made possible by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, is open in St Bartholomew’s Church on weekends throughout the summer.

Project co-ordinator Val France said: “Cynthia Phillips and Liz Askham have been carrying out in-depth research into the events of 1916 since the end of last year.

Battle of the Somme: Here's what happened to 10 Huddersfield soldiers on the first day

“The result of their hard work has produced a fascinating display highlighting not only global events, but those local to Marsden and the Colne Valley.

“Visitors will see displays relating to the Battles of Jutland and the Somme, and information about gallantry awards including those awarded to Marsden soldiers.”

The display can be seen on Saturdays from 10am to 4pm and Sundays from 1pm to 4pm. It closes at the end of a Heritage Open Days weekend on Sunday, September 11.

A number of weddings will curtail some of the opening times and visitors are advised to check the Marsden Remembers Facebook page for variations. Entry is free.
