The Hinge of Fate: Living with Uncertainty in 1942
Take a virtual and real walk around Lancaster in 1942, a pivotal time in world history.
In the middle of the Second World War, the tide began to turn in favour of an Allied victory. Along the trail, experience Lancaster through important buildings and places where the war effort continued at home. We will see the faces of volunteers who fed and protected the city and follow the stories of children who fled to Lancaster as evacuees.
Learn how the people of Lancaster adapted and banded together to keep calm and carry on!
This trail was produced with the generous help of King’s Own Royal Regiment Museum volunteers, with support from Lancaster City Museum. It has been created as part of The Hinge of Fate: Living with Uncertainty in 1942 project, made possible by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
