Full Description


The Aspects series takes readers on a voyage of nostalgic discovery through their town, city or area. This best selling series has now arrived, for the first time, in Lancaster. Susan Wilson offers the chance for readers to explore the historical interest created within Lancaster. We look at Catholicism in Lancaster and District and The story of 'The Moor', Lancaster's County Lunatic Asylum. Shivers down your spine can be felt as you experience A Spirited Leap into the Unknown and Lancaster Castle and the Fate of the Lancaster Witches. Aspects of Medicine can also be found in The Lancaster Doctors: Three Case Studies. All these and much more, of Lancaster's history, has been captivated in Aspects of Lancaster.
