Find Collections, What's on and more

HLF Digital Library

‘Looking Through a Lens’ was a Heritage Lottery funded project based at Kendal Museum, which used pioneering digital technology to preserve collections that possess considerable scientific, educational and social value.

Digital imaging scientists captured over 5000 images from the John Hamer and Bill Shaw mineral collections, and from the 19th century Martindale collection of pressed plants.

These collections have never been on public display as a whole, because they are too fragile and cannot be handled.
