On the 26th May 2022, the Trust were honoured to accept a VIP invitation to the official opening of the new Lancashire Police Museum housed in the cells of the former prison wing at historic Lancaster Castle. The museum tells the fascinating history of policing in the Northwest of England.
The museum was formally opened by Lancashire Constabulary’s Chief Constable Chris Rowley and PCC Andrew Snowden.
The Trust was represented by our Trustee Steve Lloyd who said of the event:
“It was a real pleasure to attend the opening ceremony. All those involved in the project are to be congratulated on their hard work”.
One of the old prison cells contents a special display of Lancashire Constabulary’s Police Roll of Honour and Rememberance. The display was the idea of ex-police officer Mary Randles and contents the names of fallen officers from all the former constituent police forces that were once part of Lancashire.
The museum opens it’s doors to the general public on the 9th June and will be free to visit.
