Photos of the current Exhibition

World War One disrupted the lives of every resident of Ramsbottom in unexpected and dramatic ways.This exhibition shows how Ramsbottom men, some underage, left their homes to fight, over 411 residents of Ramsbottom and surrounding villages made the ultimate sacrifice. The exhibition also explores how local women and children at home raised money, packed parcels, for the troops, looked after Belgian refugees and nursed the wounded soldiers returning from war. Everyone in Ramsbottom responded with courage and resourcefulness during the war, this exhibition tells their story.
