Exhibition opens at Heritage Centre for Local History Month

📣 May is #LocalHistoryMonth! 📣
 
Celebrate our local history with the Crewe Heritage Centre, who will be shining a spotlight upon Crewe’s past throughout May.
 
We have funded the exhibition “Forging History: the Legacy of Crewe Works” which will open on Saturday 4th May 2024! It tells the story of how the Works shaped the development of Crewe, one of Britain’s key industrial engineering towns.
 
Did you know?
• Crewe Works produced over 8,000 locomotives
• By the 1930s it was the largest railway engineering works in the world!
• At its height, the buildings that made up Crewe Works covered over two miles.
 
The Heritage Centre is planning lots of other local history activities for the month and visitors will be able to share their photos and memories.
 
They will also be working with community groups to explore local heritage topics, so keep an eye on our social media and follow Crewe Heritage Centre too for updates!
