AS a memento of Colne Valley Museum’s 40th birthday, museum member and local artist Tony Haigh has designed a commemorative plate.
As well as an image of the new entrance of the museum, the plate features the row of cottages at Cliffe Ash and a view of Golcar village. Other images of the Colne Valley include Crimble Clough, Milnsbridge, Westwood Mills, a packhorse bridge at Marsden and a handloom — this being the core reason for the existence of the weavers’ cottages at Cliffe Ash and the museum which tells their history.
The plates are a limited-run collector’s item and are for sale priced £25, from the museum shop. Plates can also be ordered by post, cost £30, including postage and packing, cheques to be made out to Colne Valley Museum and envelopes marked “Plate”).
Sales are in aid of the Realising the Dream project, incorporating the recently acquired end cottage and former chip shop into the main Museum building.
