I received the following email earlier. Please contact me if you would like a copy and I will forward Simons contact details to you.

I am from the Mourholme Local History Society (Carnforth area) and have just published a book of a local boating disaster - the Matchless in 1894. I know your Society is aware of the disaster, as three Brierciffe households as well as many Burnley ones were involved - this being during a Wakes week, many chose Morecambe as their holiday destination. My researches drew on scores of newspaper articles, National Archives materials, and the written account of a Briercliffe survivor. My book retails at £4 or wholesale price £3. Plus postage. Given the impact of this disaster on the Briercliffe community, I thought I would let you know.
Kind Regards,
Simon Williams
