Preserving & recording

our local heritage

The Official Site of The Burscough Heritage Group



Burscough Heritage Group is a not for profit, charitable organisation, run by volunteers for the benefit of the community. The group is dedicated to preserving and recording the unique history of Burscough Village and the canal.


We plan and organize an annual Heritage Week during which around 300 local school children visit us to enjoy interactive talks and role play to learn about the significant historic importance of Burscough and the surrounding area. The children are also given the opportunity for "hands on”experience of traditional crafts.

At the weekend our exhibitions and talks are opened for the public to experience and enjoy.




Our History Group arrange regular talks on a variety of subjects of local interest. The group also visit community groups to give talks and presentations that are tailored specifically to those groups.



Establishing a permanent display for a growing collection of heritage items is one of the aims of the group.


We are always looking for anything of historical local interest. If you have any items, photographs or a story

to tell about life in and round Burscough please get in touch with us.


Any original photos or documents will be returned, Other items can be photographed and recorded.

You can come to us or we will be happy to come to you.
