I've no idea who sent me the above two excellent photographs as the records were lost: but thanks!

Please note: This is all I have of Westmorland at the moment. Rather than use the 'new' county of Cumbria I will keep to the 'old' counties of Cumberland and Westmorland as well as those parts of Lancashire and Yorkshire which have been incorporated into Cumbria; this is so that the gazetteer corresponds with Pevsner and the RCHM, although the latter is only available for Westmorland. I should be grateful for any photographs anyone could send me for these counties.
