The collection of Bishop Foley [collection reference: DDFY], Roman Catholic Bishop of Lancaster (1962-1985), is a varied one reflecting not only his faith and work, but also his interest in Catholic history and travels to Italy. An intriguing inclusion to the collection is a series of letters written by Thomas Clarkson, a Catholic priest at Coppull, near Chorley. At the age of eleven, Thomas went away to school and during this time kept in touch with his parents and siblings through letters home. The letters chronicle his studies at school, his time at the seminary preparing for his ordination, up to his second posting in Weld Bank & Coppull, where he stayed until his death in 1952. It isn't clear how Thomas' letters to his family came into the possession of Bishop Foley, or if there was any connection between the two priests, but their survival is unusual and highlights the types of letters which many children at boarding schools must have written home.

As a result of several changes in ownership, the collection is extremely muddled and the original order of the records has been lost. For the most part the records are not bundled or grouped in any way and are simply loose in the boxes so an attempt has been made to summarise the main contents of each box. However, items relating to individual cases and people can be found in multiple boxes.
