Did you know that there are historical links between Rossendale and St Annes? Local Historian and author Ken Bowden from Bacup is visiting St Annes Library to give a talk ‘Rossendale comes to St Anne’s’, as part of the ‘St Anne’s on the Sea: the Rossendale connection’ project. Ken will be looking at the links between the two areas and the importance of Rossendale people in the emergence of the seaside town. Further information is available here.

The event comes from Lancashire County Council’s Community Heritage Team, in association with the Friends of St Annes Library. The talk is a follow up to that given by St Annes-based local historian Peter Shakeshaft at Haslingden Library a short time ago.

Tickets are on sale at St Annes Library. Further information: Tel: 08450530005. Email:
