Earlier this year a novel called “Mere” hit the bookshops. It’s a dark novel about the (mis)fortunes of those who struggle to live on the bed of the lost lake of Martin Mere around Burscough in Lancashire. The book is a great read especially to play guess the locations that the author Carol Fenlon has used in the story.
A keen local historian Carol researched and published the first part of a history of her home town, titled, ‘Skelmersdale, the Making of a New Town” in 2014
For the Burscough Heritage Group’s first winter meeting, they are welcoming Carol along to give an illustrated talk about her research and writing of “Mere” and further books that she has penned over the years, since her debut novel “Consider The Lilies” won the Impress Novel Prize 2007 and was published in the following June.
Everyone is welcome to come along to Burscough Heritage Group’s monthly history meeting at The Blue Mallard on Burscough Wharf on Monday the 17th of September 2018 for a 7.30pm start. Entrance is by £2 voluntary donation to the Heritage Group.
