Maisey Hutchinson was picked from 251 entries in a competition to find 22 bicycle bells hidden at the museum.

Maisey won a goodie bag full of items from the museum shop and was presented with a winner’s certificate.

Miles Peachey, Lancashire County Council’s acting museum manager at Clitheroe Castle, said: “Searching for the toys hidden within the museum is a popular activity for families with children.

“It’s also a great way to learn about Clitheroe Castle itself and the local history of the area.

“The children are having fun and learning at the same time.”

David Hutchinson, Maisey’s father, said: “Maisey absolutely loved going round the museum and visiting all of the displays.

“She really likes being able to walk around the castle, and to go inside as well.

“Maisey enjoys the treasure hunts because it makes her pay attention to all the items that are on display.”

Admission to the museum is £4.10 for adults, £3.05 for concessions and accompanied children go free.
