CPLHS – Bringing History to the Local Community
As part of the 20th Anniversary in 2016, the Committee has initiated some extra activities for members. The first of these is for members to photograph the local community activities, people, places and transport, to provide a historical record for future generations. This project is progressing well. Secondly, members are encouraged to produce biographies for the clergy from the local churches to support the Victoria County History Project, and two biographies are already published for the clergy St Mary’s Church Allithwaite. Other on-going projects are the recording of Datestones, and the documentation of trades and Livings in the communities.
2015 was the year of the 800th Anniversary of Magna Carta. To celebrate this occasion, CPLHS organised a History Day on Festival weekend. To read all about it, see the Research / Cartmel / Magna Carta page.
The next event is on Thursday 4th February 2016 at 7:30 in the Cartmel Village Hall when Ken Howarth will talk on Rocks, Lakes and Early History.
See the ABOUT page for details of the Society and Site navigation.
