Cockermouth Heritage Group
is part of Kirkgate Arts & Heritage, based here at the Kirkgate Centre in Cockermouth. We research and record all aspects of Cockermouth’s history and that of the surrounding area. We collect or copy old photographs, as well as all kinds of commemorative booklets and objects which help tell Cockermouth’s story, and which we can use in our exhibitions and publications.
We also answer local and family history queries, and take part in other local activities which have a heritage theme. Our group was set up back in 1992, and an important part of what we do is catalogue, scan and conserve our large collection.
Pre-Covid we were meeting on the first Monday of each month at the Kirkgate Centre, from 7.45 p.m. We are always pleased to welcome new volunteers, particularly if you have ideas on ways to expand the group’s activities and raise the profile within our town.
