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"
