South Ribble Museum

The Old Grammar School, Church Road, Leyland, PR25 3FJ

The restored 16th century Grammar School is now a museum reflecting the borough's history and is the venue for a monthly exhibitions programme.

A short distance from Worden Park you will find the Leyland Free Grammar School which was one of the earliest in the county and dates from 1524. Much of the present building dates from c.1580 and is a fine example of the local timber framed construction technique. Though the school closed in 1876 after over 300 years the building continues to preserve a vivid picture of life in times past with displays reflecting the borough's archaeology and its industrial and social history.
