Unlike most websites that provide information about Lancashire, this site will portray the area of Lancashire prior to the county border changing following the re-organisation of local governments after the passing of the Local Government Act 1972. Therefore, some places that are now designated to lie in Cumbria will be included as being in Lancashire.  A map of the former county borders can be found in many public libraries, or online, or in some of the older editions of books such as those published in Arthur Mee's The Kings England series of forty wonderful books of county histories.
