Our aim is to produce a permanent detailed record of the history of Cumbria. Together with Lancaster University - and supported by generous grants from the Cumberland and Westmorland Antiquarian and Archaeological Society (CWAAS) - we are working on the Victoria County History of Cumbria, part of a renowned national project to write the history of every place in England.
The Cumbria County History Trust (CCHT) is a membership organisation: if you would like to join us, there is an APPLICATION FORM here - or you can learn more about CCHT here.
If you spot any problems with the site that need attention, please let us know via Contact us
New: If you would like to learn more about how to navigate this wesbite and all that it has to offer, you can download this powerpoint presentation. It contains slides showing each page and how to move through them. You might like to use it to demonstrate available online resources to your local history group.
Our first published parish history, Kirkoswald and Renwick, is available to buy via Lancaster University's online store.
