Moving to Lancashire?
Lancashire was founded in 1182, later than a lot of counties, but swiftly became
an important player on the English political scene. It was a focal point for the
Wars of the Roses, a century-long battle for the throne of England between the House
of York and the House of Lancaster, eventually won in 1485 by the Lancastrians,
who were represented by a red rose. (The York rose was white.) Later, the region
became one of the most active centres of the Industrial Revolution. Cotton, wool,
and minerals were all produced in vast quantities all over the county and shipped
off around the world from the ports at Preston and Liverpool. Barrow-in-Furness
was a crucial shipbuilding centre during this period. The area continued to prosper
until by 1971 the population was over 5 million. The Local Government Act of 1972
carved up the country, removing Manchester and Liverpool as well as numerous small
Lancaster is the county town, dominated by Lancaster Castle. The castle was built
on a Roman site at the end of the 11th century – part of the Norman keep still stands
– and expanded in the 12th century. Since 1196 it has been a prison. There is also
a Crown Court here, the oldest in the country, which was the site of the notorious
Pendle Witch Trials in 1612. Parts of the castle are open to the public but debate
still rages about whether to move the prisoners elsewhere so as to make all of it
accessible. The city centre is pleasant to stroll through; many of the buildings
date from the 18th century, when the port was one of the busiest in the UK. Lancaster
Grand Theatre and the Dukes are both excellent venues for open air performances.
Blackpool is one of the world’s great seaside resorts, opened in the 18th century
as an exclusive destination for sea bathing and popularised with the advent of mass
rail travel in the 19th century. Today it is the gay capital of the north and visitors
tend to come for weekends, attracted by the huge clubs and bars. Landmarks include
the Blackpool Tower, opened in 1894 and modelled on the Eiffel Tower; the three
piers; Blackpool Pleasure Beach, a huge amusement park which features the Pepsi
Max Big One, the world’s tallest and fastest rollercoaster until 1996; and the Illuminations,
a series of lighted displays and collages arranged along the entire length of the
sea front. The World Ballroom Dancing Championships are held here every year.
Preston is home to the National Football Museum, which preserves several collections
of important football memorabilia. With its large Asian community, it’s also an
excellent place to get a curry. From nearby Beacon Fell, there are views over Blackpool,
Preston, and the Forest of Bowland. Many species of dragonfly make their home there.
Morecambe Bay is the largest expanse of intertidal mudflats and sand in the UK.
Made notorious by the deaths of twenty-one Chinese cockle pickers there in 2004,
it has an incredibly fast tide, “as fast as a horse can run” according to some,
and should only be crossed with an official guide. Despite the danger, it is one
of the wonders of the North, with abundant birdlife and varied marine habitats.
No description of Lancashire would be complete without mentioning its distinctive
cuisine. The two best-known exports are Lancashire hotpot, a stew made with lamb
and potatoes, and Lancashire cheese, a delicious sharp crumbly cheese: many people
are surprised to learn that black pudding, toad in the hole (sausages baked in batter),
and fish and chips also originated here. Other popular foods include Goosnargh cakes,
shortbread biscuits with coriander or caraway; Fag Pie, a pie made with dried figs,
sugar and lard; and Pobbies, bread and milk. You’ll probably leave Lancashire a
pound or two heavier, but it’s worth it!
