Pennine Lancashire Museum Consortium awarded £300,000

A museum consortium has been awarded £300,000 to improve attractions in museums and mills in east Lancashire.

The Pennine Lancashire Museum Consortium has received the money as part of the Arts Council's Renaissance Strategic support fund.

It is hoped the funding will increase the number of visitors.

Damian Talbot, of Blackburn with Darwen Council, said: "All the museums tell a different story and we want to get that message across to the public."
