This exhibition coincides with the Centenary of Girlguiding UK and celebrates Miss Rachel Kay-Shuttleworth's pioneering work with the Guides in Lancashire.

Rachel Kay-Shuttleworth was the last family member to live at the Hall. This exhibition displays many rarely-seen items, such as her hand-drawn designs for standards, county badges, samplers, original Guide uniforms. It tells the story of the work Miss Kay-Shuttleworth did during her lifelong involvement with the Girl Guides, and how her influence continues today.
