THE latest in a popular series of historical village exhibitions is currently running in the valley.
The Changing Face of Marsden 1800-1950 - Part 3 is on display at the Colne Valley Museum, in Golcar.
It runs until Sunday September 28.
The exhibition, presented by Marsden Local History Group in association with the Workers’ Educational Association, features Transport, People and Places.
The exhibition is based on original research by the Marsden Local History Group and WEA, under the guidance of Alan Petford, WEA tutor.
Visitors can find out what Marsden village was like years ago — the streets, shops and place-names, and the long-gone ‘characters’ who lived there — when the Colne Valley was the heart of the country’s woollen textile industry.
Colne Valley Museum is open Saturday and Sunday and on Bank Holidays from 2 to 5pm. Admission is £1.60 for adults and 80p for children and concessions.
