The Lydiate Estate Exhibition

The Lydiate Estate: The Hall, the Chapel and the Inn

Come along and discover the history of the local Lydiate estate. Recently awarded a Heritage Lottery grant, the Friends of Lydiate Abbey will be surveying the site of the Abbey, south of Ormskirk, this summer. This exhibition brings together plans, photographs and maps of the Lydiate estate including:

  • The Scotch Piper- known as ‘the oldest inn in Lancashire’
  • Photographs and information on the families of the Lydiate Hall
  • A pictorial history of Lydiate village
  • The case for Shakespeare in Lancashire- even in Lydiate?

You can also find out about how to get involved with Friends of Lydiate Abbey to help preserve our heritage.

The exhibition can be found on the ground floor of the Library from 12th June 2017 onwards.
