A mock 1940s kitchen and field hospital has been set up at Churchfield House as part of a World War display.
Members of the Great Harwood Civic Society and History Society have spent weeks pulling together artefacts, pictures, newspaper cuttings and children’s works for the exhibition which is now on show to the public.
Sections include a ‘Roll of Honour, the British Indian Army and local families.
Upstairs there are period toys and dozens of poems, posters and ‘trench survival guides’ created by local schoolchildren after they took part in a competition.
Peter Riding, 67, who is a member of the Civic Society and History Society, said they have had a ‘fantastic response’ from the public.
He said: “I think it is first class. There are things here for everybody to enjoy and look at.
“Everybody was really surprised when we pulled together how much stuff we had. To gather all the information and items has taken a long while and it took a few weeks to make the kitchen.
“We had a tremendous response from the schools with a lot of people getting involved. It’s nice that we have got the children involved as we want them to come down. They have done a really fantastic job and they will be visiting here in a few weeks when the schools start back up again.”
The exhibition will continue to run until Tuesday, September 30.
