World War 1 Project

In 2018, as part of the national WWI centenary commemorations, Cockermouth Heritage Group and Kirkgate Arts & Heritage were awarded a Heritage Lottery grant for a project to develop and share understanding of the effects of World War I and its aftermath on those living and working in Cockermouth and the surrounding area.
