What is Lancaster Lore?
We're a community of myth-makers re-seeding the city with stories and legends. You can find our plaques dotted around Lancaster and discover the myths for yourself. Or share your own stories by retelling an old folktale or creating something brand new.
We imagine that people from the past had a deep connection to their local places, with stories and folk-memories embedded across their landscape. Lancaster Lore is trying to re-create that for the modern world. Basically, we want to create characters or creatures or legends which lurk in every hidden corner of the city, waiting to be discovered. Ultimately, we want to grow a living breathing eco-system of folklore where story-tellers, readers and local people share and build upon each other’s myths and we create something with a life of its own.
