This year, the magazine Lancashire Life celebrates its 70th birthday. To celebrate this, Lancashire Life will show 70 objects from heritage venues across Lancashire’s County Palatine between September and November.

We, at Elizabeth Gaskell’s House, would like to nominate an object to be considered for the final 70 - and we want your help choosing which one!

“I am convinced that had I not volunteered I would not have progressed either so far or so fast.”

On the Wednesday 10 2016 the Heritage Lottery Fund came to the House to interview one of our excellent volunteers for their Changing Lives feature.

As we celebrate the first anniversary of the re-opening of Elizabeth Gaskell’s House I would like to pay a huge tribute to the many people who have worked so hard over the past year to make it such a great success.  Through the energy, dedication and commitment of so many people the house has quickly become one of Manchester’s most popular new visitor destinations and one that is unique amongst the city’s cultural attractions.  And thanks to our visitors too whose positive feedback, support and enthusiasm serves to spur us on to even greater achievements in our second year!
