Parton, Allerdale

Parton is a hamlet in the Allerdale district of Cumbria, located near the River Wampool and about 2 miles north-east of Wigton and 3 miles north-west of the village of Thursby. Parton Hall, now farmhouse, dates from the early 19th century and is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England. Historically, Parton with nearby Micklethwaite formed a township in the ancient parish of Thursby in Cumberland. Today, the settlement forms part of Thursby Civil Parish.
