Whitbeck

"WHITBECK, a parish in the ward of Allerdale-above Derwent, county Cumberland, Smiles S.E. of Bootle, and 8 S.E. of Ravenglass. It is situated on the sea-coast under the lofty mountain of Black Comb, which has on its summit a cavity similar to the crater of a volcano, and on its western slope a cascade. In the peat mosses, which cover part of the surface, trunks of oak and fir have been found of immense size. The living is a perpetual curacy in the diocese of Chester, value £80."
