Arnside  Westmorland


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Arnside like this:

ARNSIDE, a village in Beetham parish, Westmoreland; on the coast, near the Lancaster and Ulverstone railway, at the influx of the river Kent to Morecambe bay, 4¼ miles W of Burton-in-Kendal. It has a station on the railway, a post office under Milnthorpe, and a church built in 1866; and is a sub-port to Lancaster. Arnside Knot is an adjacent eminence, commanding an extensive prospect; and Arnside Tower, on that eminence, is the ruined ancient residence of the Stanleys.
