More About Cumbria

The county of Cumbria is formed from the older counties of Cumberland, Westmorland, and parts of North Lancashire, and North Yorkshire. It contains The Lake District National Park, the largest national park in Britain, established in 1951 and covering 2,292 sq km (885 sq mi). It is an area of glaciated mountains – including Scafell Pike, the highest mountain in England at 978 m (3,209 ft). It also contains a small part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

As early as the 12th Century there is evidence of mining and quarrying in Cumbria, and it probably dates back to Roman times. Everwhere in Cumbria there is physical evidence of this industry to be seen – lead, copper, zinc, baryte, haematite, tungsten, graphite, fluorite, and coal were being mined and quarried.

Present day industries include nuclear, shipbuilding, gypsum products, water, electricity from wind, biscuits, transport, and others. Historically, farming, in particular of sheep, was the major industry in the region. The breed most closely associated with the area is the tough Herdwick. From February to September 2001 hundreds of farms throughout Cumbria were struck with foot and mouth disease, with millions of animals killed. Since tourism in the area was discouraged and in many areas forbidden, this had a devastating effect on many rural businesses, who depended on visitors for their income.

Cumbria was the birthplace of the Religious Society of Friends – The Quakers – and was also important in the early days of The Methodist Church.
