Cliburn Parish and Village
Cliburn is a rural parish and village in Cumbria's picturesque Eden Valley. The parish's name is thought to be derived from cliff and burn, reflecting the distinctive sandstone escarpments (cliff) bordering the River Leith (burn) which forms much of the southern border of the parish.
St Cuthbert's church, which dates from the 12th century, incorporates Roman and Norman stonework. The ecclesiastical parish includes Winderwath where there was a medieval chapel.
Cliburn Hall, now a modern farmhouse, is based on a defensive pele tower built in the 14th century by Robert Cliburn, Lord of the Manor, who represented Westmorland in Parliament.
Six miles north-west is Penrith, a thriving market town close the intersection of the M6 and A66. The area surrounding Cliburn includes the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales National Parks and the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
