Parish Hall Plaque

The latest civic sign has been installed at the Parish Hall on Church Street which was the former Horwich Parish Church School built in 1793 by public subscription for the benefit of the new bleach works village.

Parish Church School Plaque

There are now seventeen of these distinctive and attractive green signs bearing the Town Council’s coat of arms which can be seen on many buildings throughout the town.

They acknowledge that the building has either historical significance or an association with a prominent citizen and the Town Council hopes to make further additions creating a permanent and appropriate acknowledgement of Horwich’s rich history, a ‘Heritage Trail’ that will be of interests to residents and visitors alike.

Nominations are considered from the public and there will be another plaque installed next year.
