ARKHOLME, with Cawood, a '''chapelry''', in the'''parish''' of Melling, hundred of Lonsdale south of the Sands, N. division of the county of Lancaster, 10 miles (N. E.) from Lancaster, on the road to KirkbyLonsdale.<ref>Lewis, Samuel A., [http://british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=50759#s7 ''A Topographical Dictionary of England''] (1848), pp. 69-73</ref>
 
 
 
<br> Arkholme St John the Baptist is a chapel&nbsp;created in 1740 from&nbsp;[[Melling (near Liverpool), Lancashire|Melling (near Liverpool)]], ancient parish. Other places in the parish include: Cawood.<br>
 
 
 
Until 1866 Arkholme was a chapel of ease of Melling church, but in that year it became a parish in its own right.
 
 
 
A church is known to have existed at Arkholme around 1450: a time when the village was known as Erwhum. It can never have been a large building, and was probably a single rectangular space covered by one roof. It is likely that elements of the plan of the present church, and probably some of its walling dates back to those times. <br>
 
 
 
Arkholme is one of only two Thankful Villages in Lancashire - those rare places that suffered no fatalities during the Great War of 1914 to 1918. This small village sent by far the biggest number from one village and parish off to war - 59. It is remarkable that all 59 returned to their homes. A nearby village,&nbsp; [[Nether Kellet,Lancashire]], 5 miles to the south west, sent 21 men and it, too, is a Thankful Village - all their men returned.
