HAYTON, Cumberland

"This parish, measuring ten miles in circumference, is bounded by those of Farlam, Brampton, Castle Carrock, Cumwhitton, Wetheral, Warwick, and Irthington. The Irthing and the Gelt unite their waters in the parish. On the banks of the latter are quarries of freestone, limestone, and blue slate; and coal mines were worked in Talkin until a recent date. It is divided into four townships, viz., Little Corby, Faugh and Fenton, Hayton, and Talkin; and comprises the two manors of Hayton and Talkin."
