The well-loved Lake District makes up only part of a wild and spacious county, a poetic setting for exceptionally rich Celtic, Roman and Anglo-Saxon monuments. Carlisle Cathedral and Lanercost Priory represent Northern Gothic, while castles such as Naworth and Appleby developed into fine houses which, in their style and decoration, show a rugged regional independence. Settlements range from the planned Stuart port of Whitehaven to the remote market towns of Kirkby Stephen and Alston in the east, while the architecture of the main villages and farmhouses is famous for its unaffected simplicity.
