CUMBRIA - THE LAKE DISTRICT
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.
