Soldiers stories ‘Coming Home’ in new local exhibition


Moorlands soldiers stories ‘Coming Home’ come home to the Moorlands in new exhibition.

‘Coming Home’ – which will be opening this weekend at Leek’s Nicholson Museum and Art Gallery in Leek – remembers the lives of soldiers from across the Moorlands who left their rural communities to fight in the First World War.

The exhibition runs from Saturday 6 October to Saturday 10 November and the gallery is open from 10am to 4pm Monday to Saturday.

And local historian Cathryn Walton will be bringing the soldiers experiences to life when she gives a free illustrated talk on Saturday November 3 at 1.30pm.

Admission to both the exhibition and the talk is free.
