This is no LONGER
the Virtual Lancaster website.

On 23.2.17, after 18 years of finding ways to work wonders with our original, static website, Virtual Lancaster migrated to a new, fancy, content-managing site. This site you are looking at now is the original archived site, much as it was the day we left it. It had a vast amount of local content and information, much of which was migrated to the new site where it is updated. It is no longer updated here. We are still migrating and updating content. Over time more and more of the links in this defunct archive become obsolete or broken. Please consider it a Lancaster artwork in process.
