You have chosen!

We are delighted that The House, 84 Plymouth Grove, was our voting public’s object of choice to nominate for a history of Lancashire in 70 Objects.

Amongst our staff, volunteers and trustees the inclusion of the House, as an object, did lead to some interesting and lively debate as to how we interpret the word ‘object’. We do feel however that the House, in its entirety, is a brilliantly appropriate object to nominate. Instead of me telling you why though I will let these quotes from participants do so!

This year, the magazine Lancashire Life celebrates its 70th birthday. To celebrate this, Lancashire Life will show 70 objects from heritage venues across Lancashire’s County Palatine between September and November.

We, at Elizabeth Gaskell’s House, would like to nominate an object to be considered for the final 70 - and we want your help choosing which one!

“I am convinced that had I not volunteered I would not have progressed either so far or so fast.”

On the Wednesday 10 2016 the Heritage Lottery Fund came to the House to interview one of our excellent volunteers for their Changing Lives feature.
