Situated in the North West of England, Lancashire - sometimes called the County of Lancaster or simply Lancs - includes cities like Preston , Chorley, Burnley and Lancaster. Meanwhile, Blackpool and Blackburn are unitary authorities that are often grouped with the area.
Founded in the 12th century, the region played a pivotal role in the Wars of the Roses in the 1400s.
During the Industrial Revolution, the county began to grow in prominence, especially in regards to the shipping, coal, textile and metal industries. The Manchester Ship Canal passes through the region on its way to Merseyside, while a number of other canals create a network of waterways that were especially important during the late 1800s and early 20th century.
Today, Lancashire is home to a huge number of companies ranging from manufacturing to financial, education to travel and energy to defence, making it a great choice for those seeking jobs.
Indeed, some of the top name brands that can be found in Lancashire include Leyland Trucks, Baxi, Crown Paints, Hanson plc and Thwaites Brewery, as well as Xchanging and National Savings and Investments. There's also BAE Systems Global Combat Systems, which produces military vehicles, and Rolls Royce.
