This year’s lecture, The Forest of Bowland under the Tudors and Stuarts, will be delivered by Dr Bill Shannon.

Medieval kings and nobles established forests and chases for pleasure and prestige, for the preservation of the deer and to provide gifts of venison for their followers, with perhaps a little income from cattle-ranching (vaccaries). Henry VII didn’t see it like that. He wanted to put the Crown lands on a sound business footing, to maximise his revenues. It was the beginning of the end of Bowland as a Forest: and a hundred years later James I completed the process.

(Funds raised through this event will be given to Slaidburn Archive and Champion Bowland, both of which rely heavily on donations. Contributions on the evening will be gratefully received.)
