KIRKBY-IN-FURNESS

The Roundhead Village

SITUATED ON THE DUDDON ESTUARY, TO THE SOUTH OF THE LAKE DISTRICT NATIONAL PARK, KIRKBY IS A COLLECTION OF ATTRACTIVE HAMLETS

 LYING ALONG SIDE THE A595, THE LONGEST ROAD IN THE COUNTY OF CUMBRIA

 

Kirkby residents who were actually born in the Parish of Kirkby Ireleth are given the name "ROUNDHEAD". This is taken from the practice in the slate quarries of rounding off 

the top of roofing slates. Some "ROUNDHEADS" refer to off comers as "SQUAREHEADS"

Sandbag Scheme     

The Parish Council is investigating the possibility of providing sandbag stores within the Parish. These would be situated at the Soutergate car park, the Community Centre, by the telephone kiosk at Marshside and on the CGP/Greyhound car park at Grizebeck.   

The new type of bag provided by SLDC is less likely to degrade and should last longer even though stored for some time.                                                           

    

Grass Verges

Many of the grass verges along School Road are being affected by vehicles parking and being driven on to during the very wet weather. It may be that a number of those will not recover and they will be lost to the Parish. Two or three companies whose vehicles have caused damage have been approached and they are to repair them but it has not been possible to catch all of the culprits. If you witness any vehicle causing damage to the grass verges please take a note of the registration number and/or  name of the contractor, inform a Parish Councillor and action will be taken.
