7th September 2017. Visitors have been able to discover Wyre’s rich history this month as prominent buildings across the coast opened their doors in a series of special activities at prominent places across the borough.
Among the several buildings featured in the Heritage Festival event was the National Coastwatch Institution Observation Tower at Rossall Point where the watchkeepers took the opportunity to teach the public about the buildings history and explain about the work of the NCI. Volunteers from NCI Rossall Point manned the station from Thursday until Sunday from 11am until 4pm to welcome the many visitors.
Cllr Lynne Bowen, Leisure and Culture Portfolio Holder at Wyre Council, said “We’ve opened up a variety of buildings and offered the chance to learn about the history of these places from the people who know them best - our knowledgeable and dedicated volunteers, friends groups, rangers and local historians“
