From Hellgill to Bridge End is a comparative study of the effects of local, regional and national change on nine parishes in the Upper Eden Valley in north Westmorland during the Victorian years.
From Hellgill to Bridge End is a comparative study of the effects of local, regional and national change on nine parishes in the Upper Eden Valley in north Westmorland during the Victorian years. It is based on a study of the entire population of the parishes of Appleby, Brough and Kirkby Stephen, and six surrounding parishes over six censuses from 1841 plus Marriage and Burial Registers. The analysis of a database of 65,000 records from these sources has given a rare, if not unique insight into a series of rural parishes and has allowed the exploration of themes of continuity and change within and between parishes, setting them in context within regional and national changes during the Victorian years. The book explores culture and social life including religion, education and leisure, transport, education, the local economy, agriculture and migration. Very little work exists about this part of Cumbria and such detailed analysis of a series of parishes in any region is rare and important.
