Burrells


Burrells is a hamlet in the Eden district of Cumbria and part of the civil parish of Hoff. Historically, Burrells was a township in the Parish of Appleby in Westmorland. Hoff Quarry here, now disused, was an important local source of stone (geology: Brockram Breccia - a breccia of cemented limestone and sandstone fragments, dating from the Permian period). Burrells House, built in the early 19th century, is a Grade II listed building.[1] The barn near to the house was rebuilt in 1818 and is also Grade II listed.[2]

BURRALS, a township, in the parish of Appleby St. Lawrence, East ward and union, county of Westmorland, 1¼ mile (S. by W.) from Appleby; containing 97 inhabitants. The township is supposed to have been anciently crossed by the borough walls of Appleby; and hence, by contraction, its name. It contains a great quantity of limestone.
