Blawith


Blawith is a village in the South Lakeland district of Cumbria, located about 6 miles north of Ulverston and just over 1 mile of the southern end of Coniston Water. Historically, Blawith and it's surrounding area was a township and chapelry in the ancient parish of Ulverston in Lancashire. Later, Blawith became an independent civil parish, until 1986, when it combined with Subberthwaite to form Blawith and Subberthwaite Civil Parish.

BLAWITH, a chapelry, in the parish and union of Ulverston, hundred of Lonsdale north of the Sands, N. division of the county of Lancaster, 7 miles (N.) from Ulverston; containing 186 inhabitants. Portions of the manors of Ulverston, Egton with Newland, Torver, and Conishead, constitute this township. The living is a perpetual curacy; net income, £59; patron and impropriator, T. R. G. Braddyll, Esq. The chapel existed in 1715. In 1772 Margaret Lancaster bequeathed £50, and in 1777 William Lancaster gave £110, for the support of a school.
