Who Are We

The club is one of the largest members of the Lancashire & Cheshire Photographic Union (L&CPU). We have many accredited and award winning photographers who are keen to share their knowledge and passion for photography.

Open all year round, the club is very happy to welcome new members with any level of experience. You don't need expensive gear, we love seeing photos taken from any device; be it phone, drone, or dedicated camera (DSLR/Mirrorless).

Whatever your interest in photography, we believe you will enjoy visiting us and meeting like-minded people. We hope this website will give you an insight into our club's activities, as well as a flavour of the work our members produce. Come along and join us to see the world through our lenses!
