The history of some houses in the parish

The publication of the two books on the parish has made us aware of how little we know of the history of our homes.  Some of them trace their history back to the Vikings who came to Cumbria in the 9th and 10th Centuries. The parish has many names derived from Old Norse words.
We decided that we needed to research more of our history, and so came about our present project, “Rediscovering Our Past”, which we are pursuing with the help of a grant from Cumbria Fells and Dales, the local branch of RDPE. We hope that this project will begin in the autumn of 2010.

As an indicator of our discoveries follow some of the links on the left such as Shundraw, Bram Cragg and Blind Charlie
