New: Regional Heritage Centre

The VCH Cumbria project is now part of the new Regional Heritage Centre within Lancaster University’s History Department. The new Centre had been established in order to develop the University's  activities in engaging with the regional community in the field of cultural heritage. The overarching aim is to create an integrated area of activity in the field of history and heritage which will contribute to the social and cultural life of the region.  CCHT trustees have welcomed this move, which embeds the project even more firmly in the University’s work.
