A heritage centre could be opened in Adlington to preserve the area’s history.
More than 20 people have come together to form Adlington And District Heritage Society.
And they hope to open a heritage centre to record the area’s past.
Kim Moss, a local historian, said: “Everyone loves all the old photographs and chatting on Facebook about what it was like in the good old days.
“It’s so easy now we have the internet to preserve that, rather than lose it. It would be nice to celebrate that a bit more.”
The society is looking at possible venues for a heritage centre and believe the chapel at Adlington Cemetery could be the ideal location.
Kim, 26, from Adlington, said: “That would be amazing.
“If not, we would float around for a while and do displays in the library and Fairview Community Centre.”
The group is applying for funding and hope the centre could be open within months.
Heritage society members will be at Adlington Carnival to talk about their plans and share their research. The carnival runs from July 11 to 13.
