Lancashire Archives funding campaign for Horrocks Collection

Horrocks Collection Funding Campaign

Some of the pattern collection

John Horrocks – A Textile Pioneer

The Lancashire Archives are held in Bow Lane Preston and contain an extensive collection of textile information reflecting Lancashire’s position as the centre of the world’s textile industry in the 19th and early 20th centuries.  The plan is to hire an archivist to catalogue and promote the collection.   An appeal for £12,000 has been made and donations can be made either on line or by post.  Please read more on the Friends of Lancashire Archives Website linked below.
