Thursby

"THURSBY, a parish in the ward and county of Cumberland, 6 miles S.W. of Carlisle, its post town, 5 N.E. of Wigton, and 1 mile from the Curthwaite station on the Maryport and Carlisle railway. The village is situated on the river Wampool. The parish is divided into three townships, High-Thursby, Crofton, and Parton, with the hamlet of Micklethwaite. The soil is fertile. This place is supposed to have derived its name from Thor, to whom a temple is said to have been erected at Woodrigs, in the neighbourhood." [Description(s) from The National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland (1868) - Transcribed by Colin Hinson ©2003]
