Kirkby – A visit to its Gallery

Ever heard of Kirkby Gallery in Knowsley Borough? Well it’s a great exhibition space presently housing an art display – Northern Stone and Peat Smoke by Anthony Ratcliffe. Here’s a couple of photos I took whilst visiting it recently:-

And in case you’re wondering where it is in Kirkby here’s a map:-

I went to the gallery with fellow Frank Hornby Trust trustee Les French as our Frank Hornby Heritage Center exhibition, within Maghull’s Meadows Leisure Center, is likely to be loaning some items to Kirkby Gallery for their up and coming exhibition ‘Made on Merseyside’ which opens in September. I’ll expand more on that exhibition soon…….

Here’s a link to the Gallery and it’s present exhibition ‘Northern Stone and Peat Smoke’:-

I like that this great exhibition space does so much work with school children from Knowsley and beyond.
