Research projects

Researchers applying for external grant funding to work with the Garstang collections or archive material are strongly advised contact the curatorial team to discuss the project in advance of submitting any funding application, to obtain necessary permissions.

You will be asked to complete a research project proposal form and, if necessary, a destructive testing application form (available on request).

While the Museum aims to make every effort to accommodate the needs of research projects, there are practical constraints of space, time and staff resources. Researchers are advised to contact the museum to discuss their needs well in advance of the start of any project.
