The Banner is now installed at Clitheroe Castle. The History Group were amongst the guests at a Preview at Clitheroe Castle Museum and The Atrium Café. The banner looks magnificent in its conserved state in a refurbished gallery. As former owners the Warden on behalf of the Parish Church formally presented the banner to the head of Collections for the County Museum Service, Heather Davis. The generous grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund was acknowledged as was the work of the County Museum staff in preparing the exhibition and the People’s History Museum Conservation Department for the magnificent job in conserving the banner for exhibition.
