Lancashire Infantry Museum

About This Museum

The museum houses the largest military collection in the North West.  It covers the history of the County’s three infantry regiments from the raising of Lord Castleton’s Regiment of Foot in 1689 through the several amalgamations that have resulted in the creation of the current Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment.  Objects related to the County’s Militia, Rifle Volunteers, Territorial Army, Home Guard and Cadet Units are also on display.  The collection, archive and library hold extensive historical material including uniform, badges, medals, weapons and equipment as well as photographs, film and sound, ceramics and fine and decorative art.

The regimental collection also has permanent displays at the Museum of Lancashire in Preston, Blackburn Museum, Towneley Hall in Burnley and Warrington Museum.
