NEWS ITEMS INDEX


To Eskdale index 

If anyone's really interested, I have digital photos of many of these news items (most of which were stumbled across by me and other researchers while looking for something completely different-particular thanks to Philip Ashforth).



The following list is based on place-name entries (which I have not yet followed up myself) from the handwritten index to the West Cumberland Times newspaper (covering approx. 1875-1904), housed in the Local Studies room at Workington Library. Although I have rearranged both the whole list (into chronological order) and the information within entries, I have not attempted to alter inconsistent references.
