Words: Patrick Bourne

Abbey House Museum will be opening their long-awaited Kirkstall Lives exhibition in May this year and are looking for people to share their photographs to form part of a digital display in the Community Gallery. 

Photographs can be of people, places and activities in the Kirkstall area. 

You will just need permission to share the photograph if you did not take it yourself, and be happy for it to be included in the gallery. 

The exhibition team are also interested in hearing from people who may have an object related to the history of Kirkstall from the 1940s onwards.   

If you would like to find out more, contact assistant community curator Patrick Bourne at
