Product description

This book, published in association with the Cumbria County History Trust, contains short, pithy summaries of historical information about every community in Cumbria, large and small. Arranged alphabetically, it provides a digest of facts about population, landownership, local economic history, places of worship, schools and other community institutions across the centuries. The groundwork for the Gazetteer was carried out for the Victoria County History of Cumbria project by a large team of volunteer local historians who compiled brief historical cameos for the project website, drawn from a checklist of key sources. These have now been substantially rewritten for publication, in an attempt to ensure accuracy and consistency. Providing comprehensive coverage of the whole of the modern county of Cumbria, the volume contains 348 separate articles, one for each of the Civil Parishes as they existed in the 1890s. The Gazetteer will be an indispensible work of reference for all with an interest in Cumbria's past, residents and visitors alike.
