Kirkoswald and Renwick is thefirst parish history to be produced by the Cumbria County History Trust incollaboration with Lancaster University for the Victoria County History ofCumbria. Covering 30 square miles of agricultural land and moorland, the moderncivil parish of Kirkoswald lies between the river Eden and the Pennine heights,on the western edge of the North Pennine Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.Kirkoswald township, anciently a market and small industrial centre, lies ninemiles north east of Penrith. Until 1566 Kirkoswald Castle was the principalseat of the powerful Barons Dacre of the North whose massive landholdingsextended over six counties. In 1523 Lord Thomas Dacre translated St Oswald'schurch, a pre-conquest foundation for which the village is named, to collegiatestatus, and after the Reformation the college became a gentleman's residence,acquired in 1611 by the Fetherstonhaugh family whose home it still is after 400years and 11 generations of descent.The economy, largely dependenton agriculture, benefited for 600 years from Kirkoswald's role as a market andbusiness centre, with some manufacturing (textiles, paper and timber) poweredby the waters of the Raven Beck. From 1631 to about 1850 there was coal miningon the Pennine Edge (with associated lime-burning). In the 21st century theparish remains an unspoilt and beautiful corner of England, home to some 30farms specialising in animal husbandry, and many retired people and commutersto Penrith and Carlisle.
