From Morecambe Bay to Botany Bay – Convict Women

Lancaster Judges Lodgings Museum

Over 450 women and girls were trasnported to Australia from Lancaster Castle for crimes ranging from the theft of a pan to manslaughter. A sentence of transportation meant to be cut off from family and friends for a life over the ocean, never to return. Local historian Naomi Parsons shares the stories of Lancashire women sent to the other side of the world.

Cost £5.00 (includes refreshments and entrance to the museum) – booking essential
