The Vale of Lyvennet, Its Picturesque Peeps and Legendary Lore, By John Salkeld Bland, 1910.


This is the first of what is intended to be a series of transcriptions of documents, pamphlets and books on Cumberland and Westmorland. They have been collected by Sarah Reveley, who asked me if I would host them. Many have been available elsewhere on the internet, usually on the GENUKI Cumberland List, but a permanent home was required, and I gladly agreed. This particular book was originally transcribed by Diane Coppard and Kate Burns, and their work is reproduced here with their permission.
