We particularly welcome the paper on the Isle of Man, which has close connections with Lancashire

The contents reflect the usual and welcome mix of topics, of professional and amateur historians among the authors, and also a reasonable balance between the two counties. We particularly welcome the paper on the Isle of Man, which has close connections with Lancashire, and is part of a wider Irish Sea littoral region to which Lancashire and Cheshire belong. As the twentieth century draws to a close, perhaps we should expect some more recent history in Transactions.
