Voices From Kirkham & Wesham - Oral Histories and Stories

April 25, 2023

Kirkham Treasures have published a fascinating collection of oral histories from individuals who have lived most of their lives in the Kirkham and Wesham area, giving insight into the characters, places and ways of life that they've known and which have shaped the community.

The collection has been loosely organised into the themes of Growing Up, Working Life, Wartime, the High Street, and Going Out in Kirkham & Wesham. Each theme features the memories and recollections of residents as they talk about their experiences living in the area.

If you or someone you know would like to add the collection, an audio recorder and oral history kit can be found at Kirkham Library. More information can be found on the Kirkham Treasures website.
