Looking back: 41 retro pictures of Lancaster & Morecambe College in its 200th anniversary year

Lancaster & Morecambe College celebrates 200 years of education in the local area next month.

The roots of the college can be traced directly back to the founding of the Library and Mechanics’ Institute in 1824 which after several moves, eventually settled in the Storey Institute on Meeting House Lane in Lancaster.

Having moved to its current site in 1963, the new college was officially opened by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh.

To help mark this landmark anniversary, we’ve had a search through our archives and found a great selection of pictures taken at the college over the years.

Our 41 photos feature loads of students and tutors, and are sure to bring back memories for many people.
