Kirkby Stephen lies in Cumbria, a county formed from
the old counties of Cumberland, Westmorland, and part of North
Lancashire, and now England's second largest county in size.
Here you will find the beautiful Lake District National Park
with spectacular mountain scenery, forest trails and lakeside
paths around the 16 major lakes. The almost alpine landscape
of England's highest mountains are a draw for the millions of
visitors who pour into the park each year, where for 200 years,
it has been the inspiration for artists, poets and writers who
have made their home here.
