Lytham Heritage Centre

Lytham Heritage Group was established in 1987 to preserve and promote the history of the Ancient Parish of Lytham, which includes St Annes, Kilgrimol, Heyhouses, Fairhaven, Ansdell, Lytham and Saltcotes.

The Group with its large and active membership, regularly presents exhibitions and speakers. It also has wide-ranging facilities including the Heritage Centre for exhibitions, the Archive Centre, and the Windmill Museum.

Lytham Heritage Group now occupies the Grade II listed building which was originally built in 1899 for the Manchester and County Bank and later used by the Trustees Savings Bank.

The interior has been enhanced by careful restoration and converted into an exhibition centre of considerable charm, providing a splendid backdrop of late Victorian architecture to complement the new and modern piazza in the town centre.

The Lytham Heritage Centre is equipped with a high quality security system and UV screened windows and is ideal for exhibitions, as a gallery and other similar events.
