Accrington Railway Station
6 October 2020 (by Hyndburn Park (Technician))
Last year, our Year 5 children worked on a project to create a banner for Accrington Railway Station with artist Alastair Nicholson.
Together, they looked at the local archives, and talked about the streets that they lived in, where they might like to visit by train, and quotes from their families about how they came to live in Accrington. A couple of weeks ago, Miss Smith took three of the pupils to the grand opening of the banner at the station. We’ve got a copy of it displayed in school too; it’s lovely!
