Heritage group

The Heritage section organizes visits approximately once a month to venues usually of historical interest.  These can be by coach, if out of the area, to stately homes or other places of interest.  Examples: Rhode Hall, Leighton Hall and Stoneyhurst College.  Local venues are very popular.  These have included tours of the Bridgewater Hall, Stockport’s Staircase House and Chathams School of Music.

Although the section is under the title Heritage other trips are also organized such as a canal outing from Whalley Bridge and a tour of St Helens glass.

Once a year a short holiday is arranged, so far these have been to Cambridge, Edinburgh, Bath and Wells, London,
and Kent.

A small committee plans the events, however, the committee is always pleased to look into and arrange any suggestions put forward by U3A members
The success of the Heritage section is only possible with the support of the membership.
