This Day In History

1812 Peninsular War. The 2 / 30th Foot (later 1st East Lancashires), as part of the 5th Division, hold the crossing of the river Carrion at Vlilamuriel against the attack of General Maucune for most of the day. This allows Wellington to continue his retreat from Burgos unmolested.
1854 Battle of Balaklava. 80 men from the 30th and 47th Regiments stand to their arms on the flanks of the 93rd Highlanders - the famed "Thin Red Line" - and play their full part in hurling back the Russian cavalry.

Opening Times

We greatly regret that due to the Corona Covid 19 virus, the Lancashire Infantry Museum is closed until further notice.

The Museum is open throughout the year (except for two weeks over Christmas and New Year) from 10.00am to 4.00pm on TUESDAYS, WEDNESDAYS, THURSDAYS and SATURDAYS, or by appointment. 

Fulwood Barracks remains an active military establishment, with appropriate security measures. These will not unduly impede your visit to the Museum.

HOWEVER, PLEASE NOTE THAT ADULT VISITORS WILL BE ASKED TO PRODUCE POSITIVE PERSONAL IDENTIFICATION, SUCH AS A UK PHOTO-ID DRIVING LICENCE.

On arrival at the Main Gate, please visit the Guardroom, where you will be issued with personal visitor passes for each member of your party and directed to the Museum.

If arriving by car, please halt temporarily in one the lay-bys in front of the Main Gate before visiting the Guardroom. Once issued with your passes, you will be directed to the Barracks’ ample FREE parking area.
