Following his lecture to us earlier this year and subsequent feedback, Bill Shannon has written a paper entitled: The Landscape and People of the Cartmel Peninsula in 1685: the Keurden/ Townley maps C&WAAS CW3, 18, 2018, 201-222.
Allithwaite-A Short History by Phil & Pat Rowland and Barbara Copeland (Free to Members, £1 to non-Members). The booklet is available from Phil Rowland or at Lectures.
Many members will no doubt be familiar with Stockdale’s Annals of Cartmel published in 1872. The tome contains a rich wealth of historical information. However, the book lacks a decent index or contents page. Peter Roden has painstakingly produced a Contents / index which will be of great value for researchers of Local History of the Cartmel Peninsula.
The 2019 Lecture programme may be found on the events page.
Summer events (contact Stuart Harling):
25 July – Pat Rowland – Flax walk around Newton & Barber Green.
1 & 8 August – Dan Elsworth and Helen Evans Evening walk around Flookburgh.
5 Sept – Alan Cleaver and Lesley Park – The Corpse Roads of Cumbria. Criss-crossing the Cumbrian landscape are many trods, paths, lonnings and other ancient trackways , included among these are several corpse roads. These paths were used until the 18th Century to transport the dead from the remote villages to the ‘mother’ church for burial. Alan and Lesley have written a book about these tracks.
