Cargo is a small village near the River Eden on the Solway Plain. Cargo is about 3½ miles (5.6 km) northwest of Carlisle in Cumbria in the North West of England. The name Cargo reflects a combination of two languages; from the Celtic word carreg meaning "rock" and from the Old Norse word haugr meaning "hill". Circa 1870, it had a population of 262 as recorded in the Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales.
