Mourholme Local History Society
Join us at Yealand Village Hall for this month’s lecture “The Pilgrimage of Grace” by Dick O’Brien.
The Pilgrimage of Grace, 1536-7, was the largest uprising faced by Henry VIII. His changes to English religion and church were a main cause. Cumberland and Westmorland were heavily involved, and the rebellion culminated with a battle outside Carlisle Castle and the summary execution of 74 men.
The Mourholme Local History Society was formed in 1980 to look at all aspects of the history of the parish of Warton – agricultural, manorial, social, industrial – and to carry out research into some of our more prominent local families.
The Society meets in Yealand Village Hall at 7.30 pm on the fourth Wednesday of the month (except the December meeting) from September to April and runs a comprehensive programme of guest lectures.
New members are always welcome.
