Would you like to escape lockdown? If only in your imagination... And become part of 'Escape Lockdown', our remote creative writing project. We have put together some interesting and intriguing historical photographs we hope will inspire your creative side. Use an image on its own as inspiration to produce a creative response, for example a story or a poem - whatever you like, or you might combine it in your imagination with other images in the collections to come up with an unusual story. Once you have written something, please send it to us. You can do this by clicking the 'Comment' button above the picture and writing or pasting in your poem or story (up to 900 words) or you can email it to archives@lancashire.gov.uk. Don't forget to mark it 'Escape Lockdown' and to tell us which picture(s) inspired you.
