Lancashire

Status: Complete, 8 volumes published

Completed in eight volumes 1906-14 under the inspirational leadership of William Farrer. Farrer seems to have agreed to abandon a scheme of his own for a Lancashire history in order to work with the VCH, and eight volumes were produced 1906-14. All the volumes are still available for purchase, but work is needed to update the series.

 

Lancashire North of the Sands is also included in the current VCH Cumbria project: http://www.victoriacountyhistory.ac.uk/counties/cumberland

The intention is to research and write the histories of places covered in Lancashire Volume VIII from the early 20th century to the present day.
