"KIRKBRIDE is a township, small parish, and village, 6 miles north-by-east from Wigton, and 4 south from Bowness, in the Wigton union, Cumberland ward, Eastern division of the county, archdeaconry and diocese of Carlisle; it is situated on the south side of the estuary of the Wampool. The sandbanks shift, owing to the eddies formed by meetings of the tides and freshes."
