Horbury Remembers 80 Years

To commemorate the involvement of people from Horbury during World War 2, One to One Development Trust are collecting stories, photographs, and historical artefacts for Horbury Remembers 80 Years marking the anniversary of the start of the start of the War.

From September to December 2019 an art exhibition from Horbury Remembers 80 Years is exhibited in the Redbox Gallery, Queen Street, Horbury.

View our films, audio interviews and the digital installation below!


Digital Installation

Horbury Remembers 80 Years is available to view online through a modern web browser such as Chrome or Firefox.
Dependent on next stage funding, we hope to grow this project in 2020 bringing the story of Horbury to communities, schools and care homes through an app.
