Newly created, Cumbria was fashioned from the former Cumberland and Westmorland counties, and Furness part of Lancashire, in 1974. The region is described as mountainous (by English standards), with the Scafell and Skiddaw peaks being the most (in)famous standing at over a thousand metres. History is alive here, with Hadrian's Wall being one of many ancient attractions. The region has a good mix of paranormal occurrences and stories, from the unlikely cryptozoological ‘Tizzie-Wizzie’ lurking at Lake Windermere, to the Long Meg stones located at Little Salkeld.
