Brief History of Lancashire
The Brief History of Lancashire starts, as all good histories should, with the beginning - the moment when the detritus of a dying star, spinning through the depths of the Milky Way, began to cool and coalesce, and rain - typically for Lancashire - began to fall as the moisture in the new atmosphere began to condense. A planet was formed, and history as we know it had begun.
