Miscellaneous Sources and Resources

Here you will find links to various pages and pdfs, and to other websites providing a wide range of sources and resources relevant to the history of Cumbria. This area of the website is used to primarily to locate and 'store' new items posted to the site, and nearly all of these pages will appear elsewhere on the site.  They are in no particular order. As there are over 1300 entries here use the Index to Miscellaneous Resources to locate your item which is then linked to it.

Some PDF readers have been found with problems seemingly involving the PDF filename of the item, when the item may not open.

If this occurs you should try a different PDF reader  - Adobe Acrobat Reader or Foxit Reader (which claims to be faster and is possibly more user-friendly) are options.

Both are available to download for free from the internet and both have versions available for portable devices.
