Labour History Lancs (LHL) is a new web page constructed and run by enthusiastic Lancastrian historians. We are a cross-section of academics, history undergraduates and local historians, with a passion for history, the labour movement and our beloved red rose county.
The essence of this site is to report on history news in the North West and dip our fingers into as many pies as possible. Events, reviews, historians, colleges and courses will all encompass the articles and comments that appear on this site.  
In addition, the site also provides tuition and academic support for history undergraduates. One on one tuition sessions are provided by our team, tailor made to assist individual students with their needs and queries. Historical essays and papers can be handed in and checked and improved and Independent research is also available through Lois Page on the ‘Tuition Page’.
Apart from the blog, where all views are most welcome and respected, LHL will run a monthly editorial and fun historical quiz and what better way to launch our site than by interviewing the illustrious legend of Huddersfield University and labour history, Professor Laybourn! Please see ‘Historians’ for the interview.
With no more further ado……let us get started and browse the pages.
We look forward to receiving your support and hearing from you all in the future!

Dr Roger Smalley

Monthly Quiz 

This month’s quiz requires a little bit more brain power than normal and perhaps a little bit of research!

The following 5 Lancastrian towns; Rochdale, Burnley, Nelson, Bolton and Blackburn, all elected Labour MP’s at the beginning of the twentieth century. The town’s elected their working men in 1902, 1906, two simultaneously in 1918, and a final one in 1922. The big brain teaser is; who was elected where and when? We’ll give you a starter for ten….. Big Dave Shackleton (arguably more Liberal than ever socialist) was elected to represent Nelson in 1902. Now see if you can locate the others……

 Can you name this Lancs location?  

Tuition Available

Tuition is offered and tailor made for every individual and will be set out after an initial on-line discussion.
