The Society's purpose is to carry out and publish research into these two historic communities
on the south-west coast of Lancashire, England and their surrounding area.
Since its foundation in 1985 Society members have written thirteen books on the locality and produced a historic map.
More books are being prepared for publication.
Members of the society correspond with people from many parts of the world
who share an interest in the area, exchanging information, especially on family history.
A category of Friend of the Society has been set up for people interested in the history of this area
who receive an annual newsletter in return for a modest subscription.
