The Society

CPLHS is an active and vibrant society with about 100 members. The Society organises lectures for members between  September and May. Visitors of course are very welcome to attend the lectures and pay at the door (£2.50). Full details of future lectures are contained on the Events page, and on  the lecture summaries page you will find a synopsis of past lectures. There are also field excursions between June and August for members. In 2016 members were guided around Cartmel in June, and visited Townend to view the renovations in July .
The society was founded in 1996 to promote an interest in local history within Cartmel and the surrounding parishes in South Cumbria UK, roughly the area between the River Leven Estuary to the west and the River Kent Estuary to the east. Click on the link to an article on the early days of CPLHS.
Members are encouraged to conduct and present their research into various aspects of local history. The Research pages publish the research papers from members. Members wishing to write articles on their research may wish to consult the Guidelines notes. Recently we have had a group of members from Lindale working together, and in the future the society plans to facilitate other local village research working groups. Members will also find a bibliography and other information on the  Resouurces page.
If you wish to join the society please contact the Membership Secretary. The details and an application form are on the Contact Us page.
