In recent years much historical and archaeological research has been undertaken into topics such as the site of the late medieval fortified Lathom House. This included excavations, stone surveys and geographical surveys. The body of knowledge has grown immensely but there is still much to discover about what lies hidden below ground and in dusty libraries and records.
As is often the case, the more one knows, the more one realises that there is so much more yet to learn. Archaeological research rarely finds a definitive answer to a question, more often it will provide clues, and generate more questions. Certainly in Lathom there is much more to discover.
Research is of limited value if the results are not collated and made widely known. The Trust therefore aims to become a central point where the information relating to Lathom Park can be collected, stored and accessed by everyone.
The Trust provides information via this website and social media and also by meetings, events and talks in addition to printed literature
