Westmorland - Description & Travel
This county was divided into two grand divisions called the Barony of Westmorland and the Barony of Kendal. The former was divided into two wards called East Ward and West Ward, and the latter comprised the Kendal and Lonsdale Wards, forming the south-west part of the county.
Transcriptions of descriptions from Parsons & White 1829 are given on Edenlinks.
Westmorland is now part of Cumbria and is a still a very sparsely populated rural area. It is best-known for including part of the beautiful Lake District National Park. It contains the longest lake - Windermere - and second highest mountain - Helvelleyn - in England.
