CALDBECK, Cumberland

"CALDBECK PARISH extends about eight miles in length and six in breadth; being bounded on the east by Castle Sowerby, on the south by Skidaw, on the west by Bassenthwaite, Uldale, and Ireby parishes, and on the north by Catlands, Brocklebank, and Warnel Fells. The soil near Hesket and Caldbeck is fertile, but the western parts of the enclosed land is cold and heavy. It ranks among its mineral treasures lead, copper, coal and limestone. It is divided into the three townships of Caldbeck Haltcliff, Caldbeck High, and Caldbeck Low which together in 1841, contained 1553 inhabitants."
