Cumbria is a non-metropolitan and ceremonial county found in the far north west of England at its border with Scotland. As well as sharing a border with southern Scotland, the county also neighbours the other English counties of Lancashire to the south, North Yorkshire to the south east, and County Durham and Northumberland to the east.
The only major settlements of note within the county of Cumbria are the town of Barrow in Furness, and the county town of Carlisle which also forms the administrative centre of the county. Aside from those settlements, Cumbria is predominantly rural and contains the Lake District and Lake District National Park, considered one of England’s most outstanding areas of natural beauty.
Physical Geography And Features Of Cumbria
As well as featuring the beautiful and picturesque countryside associated with the Lake District, Cumbria also has in its south eastern corner, a major swathe of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Away from these two major regions, Cumbria is largely mountainous in nature and has the distinction of featuring every peak in England over 3,000 feet (910 m) above sea level, with Scafell Pike at 3,209 feet (978 m) being the highest point of England.
Alongside the picturesque and scenic views afforded by Cumbria’s countryside, there are also a number of famous landmarks and features within the county’s boundaries. These include the aforementioned Scafell Pike, Carlisle Castle, Furness Abbey, and Hadrian’s Wall.
Population And Activity In Cumbria
Whilst the features mentioned above do attract a fair number of tourists to Cumbria, the county remains a comparatively quiet one due to the fact that it is statistically one of the most sparsely populated one in England. This is due to the fact that the entirety of Cumbria is home to only around 500,000 permanent residents at a population density of just 190 per square mile.
That lightly populated nature and the general lower level of activity in the county therefore suggests that vehicular traffic will also be less intense in Cumbria. That does not mean that traffic accidents cannot ever occur in the county, however, and it is that which means that it remains pertinent to briefly discuss Cumbria whiplash claims.
Cumbria Whiplash Claims
It is possible under UK law for an individual to pursue Cumbria whiplash claims as and when another party’s actions have caused them to suffer a neck injury. These Cumbria whiplash claims proceedings are the way by which such a victim can seek to receive the personal injury compensation they deserve.
