Beckermet St Bridget

"BECKERMET ST. BRIDGET'S, a parish in the ward of Allerdale-above-Derwent, in the county of Cumberland, 4 miles to the S. of Egrement, and 9 from Whitehaven. It is situated on the sea-coast, on the banks of the small river Calder, and is separated from the parish of Beckermet St. John's by the Kirkbeck rivulet. The land near the sea is extremely fertile, but towards the east, nearer the fells, it is cold and barren. Freestone is quarried in this parish, and there is a small spade manufactory in the village."
