Kirkland (Culgaith)

Kirkland is a hamlet in the Eden district of Cumbria, located about 8 miles north-east of Penrith. Historically, part of Cumberland, 'Kirkland with with Blencarn' was a township, with a population of 233 in 1848. This formed part of the wider Kirkland Parish, for which St Lawrence's Church here was the parish church. Today Kirkland is part of the Civil Parish of Culgaith.
