Chorley Remembers

Chorley Remembers is a major heritage project devised, managed and delivered by Trustees behind the Chorley Pals Memorial, a registered charity no. 1121707, based in the Lancashire market town.

Heckford Exhibitions was appointed by charity Chorley Remembers to design and create an interactive exhibition commemorating local residents who fought in conflicts since 1914.

The permanent exhibition, on display at Astley Hall in Chorley uses the latest technology to illustrate what life was like for the Chorley Pals, who were on the front line of the battle of the Somme in 1916. Visitors are able to use touch-screen technology to go on a journey through history, discovering the stories of the war heroes, as well as exploring a detailed recreation of what life was like in the trenches through realistic sets.
