Complete sets of Census data for Londsale and East Wards are now available on the website under the 'Resources' section. Eskdale and Kendal Wards are nearly complete, but work still has to be done on Leath and Cumberland Wards. Please contact Sarah Rose if you would like to help with this.

Around forty CCHT members took part in a special evening visit to Lowther Castle, involving a tour of the castle ruins, stables and gardens -

Census data for Allerdale Below and West wards are now available on the members-only part of the website. These documents can be found under 'Work in Progress'. Other wards will be made available as soon as data collection has been completed.

Volunteers attended a meeting at Penrith on Monday 8th August. The meeting included a demonstration of the new CCHT website and a discussion of the ways volunteers can contribute to the project.

An Image Gallery has now been added to the website.  The first  images include a selection of extracts of early maps showing parts of Cumbria.

Also included are scans of several engravings from Thomas Pennant's 1801 Tour of Alston Moor. 

Today, 23 May, the temporary website has been closed down and the new one launched.  Bear with us while we make sure all the old links etc work.
