"ST. BEES, (or Kirkby Beacock), a parish in the ward of Allerdale-above-Derwent, in the county of Cumberland, 3 miles to the N. W. of Egremont. It is situated near the coast of the Irish Sea, along which it extends about 10 miles, and was the largest parish in the county until recently, when Loweswater was constituted a parochial chapelry, with independent jurisdiction. It contains the chapelries of Ennerdale, Eskdale, Hensingham, Nether Wasdale, Wasdale Head, and Whitehaven; and the townships of Kinniside, Lowside-Quarter, Preston-Quarter, Rottington, Sandwith, and Weddiker."
