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.
