Parish in the County of Westmorland


The ancient parish of Windermere had four divisions, Ambleside below Stock, Applethwaite, Troutbeck, and Undermillbeck. Undermillbeck included Winster (i, 178supra ), which was a chapelry of Kendal, but is now in Crook. The disposition of the place-names is according to the present civil parishes and not the old divisions.
