The Friends are all our members who have a common interest in the history and heritage of the Pendle area and get together for a variety of events. We want to help people understand, discover and rediscover the breadth and richness of many aspects of our local culture that has been handed down the generations. Through our events we hope to bring the community together to keep our cultural heritage alive ready to be passed down to the next generation.

We are an independent organisation, run by volunteers, concentrating on both Heritage and Archaeology.

A committee of the Trustees meet six times a year to decide on the calendar of events.
