'Founded in 1883 to promote the study of the history of Lancashire and Cheshire. Its sphere includes archaeology (both traditional and industrial), economic and social history, architecture and the arts, and folklore. Its range extends from antiquity to the more recent past. Although the Society is based on Manchester, its studies and activities embrace the region. Membership is open to all individuals and societies who are interested in the various historical aspects of the two (pre- 1974 reorganisation) Counties Palatine ... The Society aims to hold annual day schools, either self-promoted or occasionally in association with other organisations.'
