Waitby Civil Parish


Waitby Civil Parish is a rural parish within the Eden district of Cumbria, with a population of less than 100. The two largest settlements are Waitby and Smardale. There are also the smaller hamlets of Lease, Riddlesay, and Stripes. Before 1894, Smardale was a separate civil parish; prior to the two parishes being combined, both Smardale and Waitby had a short-term boost in population associated with the building of two railways; the 'Stainmore Line' in the 1860's and the Settle and Carlisle Railway in the 1870's.
