This week marks the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Turnpike Centre, the home of Leigh library and art gallery.

It is without doubt one of the most recognisable and distinctive buildings in the borough and many people will have their own connections to it.

Throughout the next 12 months there are plans to reminisce about its five decades of history through special exhibitions and they will be asking visitors to share their memories of the building.
