Cockermouth - Main Street
Cockermouth is a quaint market town, which
lies just outside the Lake District National Park. Its wide
tree-lined Main Street is dominated by the statue of the Earl
of Mayo, once an MP for Cockermouth who was murdered in the
Andaman Islands in 1872. There is a pleasant selection of shops,
pubs and interesting courtyards to explore, which are almost
hidden through alleyways from the Main Street of the town.
