Museum News


The Museum was pleased to welcome Andy Burnham, the Mayor of Greater Manchester, when he visited Rochdale recently.

The Mayor was keen to see our plans for the redevelopment of the former Rochdale Fire Station into a stunning new fire museum over the next two years and met with Trustees and Volunteers at Maclure Road.  Seen here with Andy (centre) is (L to R) Museum Chairman Steve Williams, Curator Bob Bonner, Trustee Geoff Bottomley and Greater Manchester Fire Authority Chair David Acton. 

Mission Statement

”To explore, preserve and make accessible the history of fire, fire engineering and the fire and rescue services in the Greater Manchester region and, through our collections and resources, to further the education and promotion of fire safety in the community.”

Fund Raising

The Museum is currently trying to raise £100,000 towards the next stage of our major relocation project. Can you help by means of a donation to our Paypal account ? If so, click the DONATE button now. Thank you!
