With the redevelopment of Whittingham Hospital, which closed its doors thirty years ago, much has changed in Goosnargh and Whittingham. It is still of great interest historically, first recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 and the ancient parish church of St, Mary's stands as it has done for centuries, flanked by the imposing Bushells Hospital, Grapes Inn and the school. Historic halls still hold their secrets of priest holes and private chapels, the place names of Button Street and Silk Mill Lane remind us of its once prosperous cottage industries. Looking back at Club days of the Friendly Society, Harvest Festivals, Royal Jubilees, bull baiting and gambling on Inglewhite Green, eccentric vicars, and much more which helps to build a picture of what life was like in the 19th century and beyond, Characters of Goosnargh in the past, including the first chronicler of Goosnargh, Richard Cookson who wrote Goosnargh Past and Present and the Goosnargh Rambler, which were an inspiration for this book.

"... excellently written in a very readable style ... It gives the local history beginner a good grounding ... and gives the experienced local historian an insight into new thinking and new evidence." Open History Cheshire has had dramatic discoveries, such as the bog bodies of Lindow Moss or the Roman camps and forts, which have enabled archaeology to rewrite much of Cheshire's earlier story.

Cycling guide to the Lancashire Cycleway - two loops, each 130 miles (225km), which meet at Whalley in the Ribble Valley, northern England. Lancashire is a great place to cycle, and cycling is a great way to see Lancashire. One of its great delights is its sheer variety. There's easy riding on the flat expanses of the west of the county and the gentle undulations of Arnside and Silverdale or the Ribble Valley. More stirring challenges are found in West Pennine Moors and the epic crossing of the Bowland Fells. But even on the wildest stretches, you're never too far from a welcoming pub and somewhere to sleep. The Cycleway comprises two distinct loops, each around 130 miles (225km) in length, which meet at Whalley in the Ribble valley. Seasoned cycle tourists can comfortably tackle either loop in a weekend, or do the whole thing inside a week. However, access by rail at numerous points means that less experienced cyclists can do it in shorter sections. This book, the first comprehensive guide to the Lancashire Cycleway, gives guidance on how to manage this, as well as a full description of the route, notes on where to find meals and accommodation, and masses of information about places of interest along the way. There is also some helpful advice for those new to cycling or cycle touring.

The Pagan Religions of the Ancient British Isles

Their Nature and Legacy

Author: Ronald Hutton

Publisher: Wiley-Blackwell

ISBN: 9780631189466

Category: Religion

This is the first survey of religious beliefs in the British Isles from the Old Stone Age to the coming of Christianity, one of the least familiar periods in Britain's history. Ronald Hutton draws upon a wealth of new data, much of it archaeological, that has transformed interpretation over the past decade. Giving more or less equal weight to all periods, from the Neolithic to the Middle Ages, he examines a fascinating range of evidence for Celtic and Romano-British paganism, from burial sites, cairns, megaliths and causeways, to carvings, figurines, jewellery, weapons, votive objects, literary texts and folklore.
