A Community Survivor

Cockermouth is situated on two rivers, Cocker and Derwent. It's a market town situated in North West of Cumbria which made headline news for its 2009 flood. A lot of damage was down the town but known for its community spirit in rebuilding the town in a short space of time. It's hard to see what effects the flood in the town centre but we learnt more about the natural incident when we visited Wordsworth House.

We spent an afternoon looking round Wordsworth House, a National Trust property.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A pleasant market town.
  • Cons:Vulnerable to flood as the town sits on two rivers!
  • In a nutshell:William Wordsworth Birthplace!
