Museum News


Our recent exhibition at the All-in-One Garden Centre, Rochdale Road, Slattocks, Middleton on Saturday 25th May was a great success with hundreds of people coming down.  Two of our historic fire appliances - the 1940 Dennis pump escape and the 1910 steam fire engine "George V" were on show, as well as the museum sales stall.  As well as inspecting the vehicles, visitors were able to explore our plans for the new museum and discuss the redevelopment with the volunteer team.  Look out for the Museum at more external events this summer, full details on the Forthcoming Events page.
