A history of Lancashire in 70 objects

A history of Lancashire in 70 objects


All the items that have appeared in our ambitious project to mark the 70th anniversary of Lancashire Life.

Young visitors to the county’s museums and heritage venues can to tick off the objects as they see them in a free Spotter’s Guide.

The guides are available from all participating venues and you can download a copy of the guide here

And once you’ve spotted enough objects, you can download certificates from our website, too.

You might also spot Spotty. He’s a little bear with a big plan – he wants to see all the 70 objects before Lancashire Day on November 27. He has already visited a number of venues and he’s taking a selfie with each object he spots and posting them online and you can follow him on twitter with the hashtag #Spottythebear.

And be sure to let us know how you’re getting on too – share your selfies with the objects at @70_objects #Lancashire70
