"Stretches along both sides of the Eden, through the most picturesque part of the vale, a distance of about six miles, and has a breadth of from one and a half to three and a half miles. It is bounded on the east by the parishes of Hayton and Cumwhitton, on the west by St. Cuthbert's and St. Mary's, Carlisle, on the north by Warwick, and on the south by Wreay and Hesket. The soil is in general fertile and well cultivated . . . The parish is divided into four townships: Great Corby and Warwick Bridge, Cumwhinton and Cotehill, Scotby, and Wetheral."
