Local History

We moved to Leyland in the late 1990s. Although a modern town, there is plenty of local history to find.

There is also plenty of history to be found in the surrounding area.

My thanks to all those people and organisations that have provided information, knowingly or otherwise, to help me put my pages together. Any mistakes and inaccuracies are almost certainly of my own making.
