HISTORIC CABUS

Cabus Parish Council have produced a colourful and interesting Historic Cabus leaflet which details a walking route around the parish to explore the district’s history and heritage.

The leaflet highlights the turnpike roads, the Lancaster canal, Hangman’s Lane and the possible routes of a Roman Road and also the route believed to have been taken by men of Scorton on their way to fight at Agincourt.

Other features include the Cabus Cross (a milestone) and WW2 concrete installations.

Visit the council website to view the map and download a copy.  The leaflets are also available at the Visit Garstang tourist information and various locations throughout the area.

THE WAR GRAVES PHOTOGRAPHIC PROJECT

The original aim of The War Graves Photographic Project was to photograph every war grave, individual memorial, Ministry of Defence grave, and family memorial of serving military personnel from WWI to the present day.

However, due to its popularity they have now extended their remit to cover all nationalities and military conflicts and make these available within a searchable database.

Why not visit the website and search for your family war grave or memorial?

GARSTANG HERITAGE TRAIL

The Garstang Heritage Trail follows the history of the
town. The trail leaflet will guide you along the route of
Garstang’s past, via the many historic buildings and
landmarks that remain today. Copies can be collected from the Visit Garstang Tourist information office in Cherestanc Square, or you can down load a copy here

GARSTANG HERITAGE PUB TRAIL

In the early 1800s Garstang could boast to having fifteen public houses. This fact alone is testimony to Garstang’s commercial importance, and to the extent of passing trade there must have been at this time. Although there were undoubtedly inns in Garstang prior to the 17th Century, there appear to be no surviving records. The Garstang Heritage “Pub” Trail will often include parts of the Garstang Heritage Trail but will mainly concentrate on sixteen pubs past and present; those which no longer exist, and those which have stood the test of time.
