Labour History Lancs (LHL) is a 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 encompass the articles and comments that appear on this site.
In addition, the site also provides Free tuition and academic support for history undergraduates. and A level students. One on one tuition sessions are provided by our team, tailor made to assist individual students with their needs and queries.
Apart from the blog, where all views are most welcome and respected, LHL 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!
