Following on from the success of publicising her first book, Lavender Hills’ Benda has been recognised by Bury Archives.
Acknowledge by Bury Library, her book has joined other significant pieces of history such as parish records, newspaper articles, historical maps and online resources.
Brenda’s book, The House on the Hill, looks at the history of Lavender Hills Care Home from 1853 – 2023.
The home which overlooks Ramsbottom, and the Lancashire countryside was originally built by Samuel Porritt, a local businessman and philanthropist, for his family and was named ‘The Cliffe’.
The book is full of photos and facts, and all at Millennium Care are delighted that Brenda’s hard skill and dedication is now housed within the Search Room, located on the ground floor of Bury Art Museum & Sculpture Centre and is readily available to the public.
