Locomotiv8ors Project

Horwich Heritage is pleased to have a close association with all the Primary & Secondary Schools in Horwich.

In particular it has for the past 4 years run a successful Schools Programme called 'Locomotiv8ors' in partnership with Bolton Playing for Success (Bpfs) which is supported by the Big Lottery Fund.

This enables every Primary School in Horwich & the surrounding area to bring pupils to our Heritage Centre to learn about the Locomotive history of the town in an imaginative & fun way. If the schools wish, the sessions can be extended to include topics like 'The Victorians', 'WWI & WWII', 'The 1960s' & 'A Horwich Heritage Trail' and many schools choose to bring classes separately to learn about these specific aspects.

If your school would like to organise a visit to our Heritage Centre to learn about any aspect of Horwich's rich history please e-mail: whittlestuart@aol.com

This invitation also extends to any group or society. We would be happy to see you.
