The year of celebrations continues with the biggest of the all - Lancashire Day

Its the day when Lancastrian hearts swell with pride as we celebrate all thats great about our county.


We all know theres plenty to be proud of all over the county from the banks of the Mersey to the fells of Furness and from the shores of the Irish Sea to the peaks of the Pennines and these pictures by photographers John Cocks and Kirsty Thompson show the joyous celebrations around the county last year when clogs, shawls and cloth caps were dusted off and red roses were much in evidence.


There have been reasons to celebrate all year, with The Open at Lytham, Preston Guild, the centenary of Blackpools Illuminations and events to mark the 400th anniversary of the Pendle Witch Trials, not to mention the Duke of Lancasters Diamond Jubilee celebrations.


And the bunting will be out again this month as Lancastrians everywhere mark the countys special day. Toasts will be made at 9pm on November 27 to The Queen, Duke of Lancaster, to mark the date in 1295 when Lancashires first elected representatives were summoned by King Edward I to become Members of Parliament at Westminster.
