MILLOM, Cumberland

"This parish is the extreme southern part of the county, and stretches northward from the sea along the west bank of the river Duddon, to the source of the Esk, and containing the four townships of Birker and Austhwaite, Chapel Sucken, Millom Below and Millom Above; also the two chapelries of Thwaites and Ulpha. It is bounded on the north by the Esk, which divides it from Muncaster and Eskdale, on the west by Waberthwaite, Corney, Bootle, Whitbeck and Whicham, and on the south by the mouth of the Duddon which here expands into an open sandy bay, well known for its mussels and cockles."
