The Lancaster branch of the League of Nations Union (LNU) held a meeting in Wyresdale, a rural area to the south-east of Lancaster, to promote the League of Nations in the year March 1921 to April 1922. Nether and Over Wyresdale include the villages of Scorton, Dolphinholme and Abbeystead, together with a large area of farmland. (1) It appears that a branch (or sub-branch) was formed which lasted for a while as seven years later it was announced at the Lancaster LNU’s AGM in 1929 that ‘two sub-branches have been reformed at Wyresdale and the Greaves Wesley Church, and we hope they will increase in strength and add to our members.’ No information so far has come to light about the activities of the Wyresdale LNU.
Wyresdale was in the Lancaster LNU District Council area.
