Barrow-in-Furness Borough


Barrow-in-Furness is the second largest urban area in Cumbria, after Carlsile; the built-up urban area had a population of 45,865 at the time of the 2011 Census. Barrow was incorporated as a municipal borough in 1867. Barrow is located on the Furness peninsula by Morcambe Bay. The borough includes Barrow, Barrow Island, Walney Island and some outlying settlements, such as Rampside, Roa Island and Piel Island. Unlike most of the rest of Cumbria the area is largely unparished; it is served by the Borough of Barrow-In-Furness Council. The Town Hall is located on Duke Street in Barrow.
