'Keer to Kent' Archive

Welcome to the Keer to Kent archive, an on-line collection of past editions and articles from the journal of the Arnside and Silverdale AONB Landscape Trust. 

History of the Journal

The Landscape Trust’s journal, Keer to Kent, was first published in September 1986 and has been produced three times per year and distributed for free to members ever since.  The journal has had a variety of editors over the years, each of whom has brought their own distinctive style and flair to the publication and each building on its quality, until today Keer to Kent is very much the flagship of the Trust and for many is one of the most valued aspects of membership of the organisation. 

Index of content

An index of all of the articles, photographs etc which have appeared in Keer to Kent was compiled by Terry Keefe to celebrate the first 50 issues of the journal and has been maintained and kept up to date by Mike Smith. The index is currently offered as a PDF file which can be viewed and searched on-line, or else downloaded to your own device for off-line use later.

The Collection

This collection is very much a “work in progress” and currently very far from complete. Items will be added here periodically as they are prepared and collated; you are encouraged to check back regularly for news of updates.
