Cumbria has a population of 500,000. It is one of the most sparsely populated counties in England, with around 70 people every 190/sq mile - the largest settlement and only city is Carlisle, in the north of the county. The county is home to the beautiful Lake District National Park - A UNESCO World Heritage Site. Much of Cumbria is mountainous, and it contains every peak in England over 3,000 feet (910 m) above sea level - Cumbria is home to England's highest mountain and deepest lake. Cumbria receives around 50 million tourists a year, who generate around £3 billion for the local economy. The Lake District and county as a whole attracts visitors from across the UK, Europe, North America and the Far East.

Cleator Moor is a town in West Cumbria, UK, which was born from the ancient village of Cleator. In the beginning, the moorland of Cleator was barren with a few farms tending the stark land. In the 17th Century, Iron Ore was first extracted from beneath the ground, bringing about a huge revolution that helped modernise industry across the globe. Prosperity gave birth to the town of Cleator Moor. Thousands came to the town looking for work - many were from Ireland, fleeing a devastating potato famine. The Irish Diaspora gave rise to the moniker, Little Ireland.

Cleator Moor has a population of around 7,000. The town and neighbouring village of Cleator are overlooked by Dent Fell which is on the fringe of the National Park; Dent is the first fell that you encounter on the Wainwright Coast to Coast walk. The Sea to Sea (C2C) cycle network also passes through Cleator Moor via the disused railway which is now part of the National Cycle Network. South from Cleator, towards the town of Egremont is Longlands Lake a local beauty spot and haven for wildlife, the lake is set in the former iron ore mine. Cleator Moor has a few distinct communities which have emerged as the town has grown such as Mill Hill, Bowthorn and Wath Brow. The town is known for its sporting achievements; Celtic Football Club has produced players that have gone on to play for National Teams and for England, Wath Brow Hornets are a leading amateur rugby league team again producing national players. The Cricket Club has also won the National Village competition at Lords, London.
