The object of the Society is to promote the advancement of education of members of the public in all aspects of history and in particular of the Leyland Area.


Welcome to the new Web Site for the Leyland Historical Society. Since we established our first website in December 1999 celebrating the visit of Mick Aston of Time Team to that months meeting, we had updated that site until the 23rd May 2015 when the previous website owners could no longer provide the site as it had suffered from a catastrophic failure.


We will rebuild the website over the coming months. As well as intending to place details of our recent meetings, events and research that the members undertake, we are now able to add more photographs, hopefully videos and  other multimedia.


The FESTIVAL ROUTE THROUGH LEYLAND'S HISTORY

THROUGH THE Lanes    OF LEYLAND                  - THE INNER WALK

This 5-mile walk leads round the outskirts of the old village along the old lanes. Most of these are now busy main roads, though in the case of Back Lane, care of the Faringtons influence, it has been kept in its country lane appearance.



Walking from the start of the procession on Centurion Way to the entry into Worden Park.

This 2 ½ mile walk will take you around the old centre of Leyland, from the village cross along the lanes that have developed in the last hundred years from field paths and country lanes into the urban landscape we know today.
