Cumbria Explored: The Village of Kirkoswald

Today Robert Croser has joined me to show me around the former market town of Kirkoswald in Cumbria.

The village, civil parish and former market town of Kirkoswald lies in the Lower Eden Valley of Cumbria, formerly Cumberland, about 9 miles from Penrith.

The village’s name means Church of St Oswald and the parish church is dedicated to Saint Oswald, King of Northumbria. The body of Oswald is believed to have been taken through the village. The church lies on the southern edge of the village overlooking the River Eden close to the bridge which connects Kirkoswald to Lazonby.
