Experience life in a WWI trench at the Lancashire Museum

Preston, Lancashire

Tens of thousands of proud Lancastrians perished in the Great War, whose experiences in the trenches are brought to life at the Museum of Lancashire in Preston.

Their names are recorded on war memorials in every city, town and village across the county. Though fallen, Lancashire’s brave soldiers are remembered and honoured by a whole host of organisations, including local museums, veterans groups, the armed forces themselves and many more.

The Museum of Lancashire in Preston provides a good introduction to life in the battlefield with its replica of a WWI trench complete with sights, smells, sounds and crawling spaces.

Look out for other events and exhibitions throughout the county, which commemorate the anniversary and the role of Lancashire regiments, including that of the ill-fated Accrington Pals.
