Caldbeck is situated just outside of Carlisle in the NW of England.
It has recently been put on the map by being one of only two sites in the country to require the building of a new TV mast for Digital TV.
Caldbeck Parish lies at the foot of the Northern Fells. Carrock Fell, High Pike, and Longlands overlook it, with the peak of Skiddaw sometimes visible beyond. It stretches from High Intack in the west to Haltcliff Bridge in the east and from the north at Blue Gate to the south at Linewath.
Caldbeck Parish is within the jurisdiction of Allerdale Borough Council and most of it, only excluding a small section north of the village of Caldbeck, lies within the Lake Distict National Park.
Caldbeck Parish is a beautiful and quiet rural area. It is popular with tourists, walkers and cyclists and is a very desirable place to live and bring up children, or to retire to from more crowded rural districts. It is difficult to believe that it was one of the most industrialised parts of England.
