New attraction at Lymefield

By Avril Marsh on Monday, 30 January, 2017

There’s a new attraction at Lymefield in Broadbottom, where textile artist Maxine Pigram recently opened an arts and crafts gallery. She has refurbished the interior of the Outdoor Learning Centre to bring together the talents of the many creative people she has found in the area,displaying their work alongside her own embroidered pictures. Maxine grew up in the village and her family still live there, so she is delighted with the gallery’s location. “I love the countryside round here, and this woodland setting is the perfect place to display arts and crafts, as so much of the work is inspired by nature.”
