Farlam :

An ancient parish in Eskdale ward, Cumberland.
St. Thomas a Becket church was constructed in 1860 close to the original site of a medieval church which had been there since at least 1169 when it was recorded in the Lanercost Priory records.
Midgeholme is an extra-parochial area which reached a population peak of about 550 in 1891 due to mining activity. Prior to 1841 there were less than 100 people in the area.
