Sankey Photographic Collection - Activity Survey
We've just secured early funding from Heritage Lottery Fund to begin developing a plan of activity commencing mid-2019 surrounding The Sankey Photographic Archive.

THE SANKEY'S were a father and son duo who documented life in Barrow and Cumbria over 70 years, capturing the landscape, cultural changes, individuals, industry & tourism (plus much more). The photographs they created from their photography were posted all over the world!

We've been working closely with the Sankey family since 2016 and are excited to create an incredible programme of future events (pending further funding support) hopefully starting in 2019 - 2022. However, before this happens, we want to hear from you: Do you have any Sankey connections? Are there any workshops you'd love to get involved with? If so, please fill in our survey as we would love to hear your thoughts, comments and suggestions.

For additional information please contact / 01229823592
