On Monday 1st July 1968 in the Methodist Church Hall on Turpin Green Lane, Leyland at 7.30 pm, there was the first meeting of the Leyland Historical Society.

This meeting was the culmination of many months of planning by the first President, Noele Bannister who managed to attract over 150 to that meeting.

AS WE APPROACH THE SOCIETY'S 50TH ANNIVERSARY THIS AND SUBSEQUENT PAGES WILL TELL THE STORY OF THE SOCIETY AS IT ESTABLISHED A MUSEUM IN THE OLD GRAMMAR SCHOOL.


TO READ THE STORY OF THE FIRST 25 YEARS YOU CAN READ THE "HISTORY OF THE LEYLAND HISTORICAL SOCIETY" OBTAINABLE VIA THE PUBLICATIONS FOR SALE PAGE OR AT ANY OF OUR MEETINGS.
