Draft Township Histories

Eventually, there will be 348 histories here, one for every township or parish in Cumbria. 

We have made a start, and a List of Draft Histories, completed, interim or partial is available HERE ;  They can be downloaded as pdf documents:

Kirkby Lonsdale Ancient Parish

We aim to publish a volume covering the nine townships of Kirkby Lonsdale parish in a single volume. Here you can read the initial interim drafts for each township. These need further research, but have been posted here for interest. Please do not quote from them without seeking permission first.
