WelcomeLevens is a village and parish of approximately 450 homes and 1000 people situated in south Cumbria. The Levens Local History Group was set up in 2006 to research and investigate the heritage of the village and parish and its occupants. The Local Heritage Initiative started the research process by providing equipment and Heritage Lottery Fund funding for the first three years of research, 2006-2008. The longer-term aim of the group is to produce a total history of the development and growth of the village up to 2005. This website contains some of the archive material collected and transcribed, gives links to further sources and advertises Levens Local History Group meetings and events. The Levens Local History Group welcomes additional information on any aspect of local history for our area. If you have any information, documents, pictures or photographs, please contact us.
