Branch email: firstname.lastname@example.org Join us at 7:30 p.m. on the first Thursday of every month at Ewood W.M. Club on Bolton Road, Blackburn, the A666 Blackburn to Darwen Road, close to the football ground & McDonalds, easy access from M65 junction 4 (towards Blackburn). We use the spacious and comfortable upstairs function room.
In addition to all the Society Library box holdings, and project microfiche, the branch has built up its own library with general reference books and materials specific to the Blackburn/Darwen area, including copies of monumental inscriptions for several churches, for example, St James at Lower Darwen and Tockholes Independent Chapel.
Normally we have a speaker, followed by questions, time to look at the bookstall and branch library items, and to discuss research problems with other members.
There is no charge to attend meetings, but our Treasurer will be pleased to discuss society membership with you. Drinks can be purchased at the bar downstairs.
