The new county, created by Local Government Reorganisation 1974, comprises the old counties of Cumberland, Westmorland, Lancashire north of the Sands, and a small part of Yorkshire.
Measuring from the false origin of the NGR coordinate system: west to east is from 293 to 390Km = 97Km; south to north is from 461 to 589Km = 128Km.
The county borders on Dumfries and Galloway Region, and Borders Region, Scotland to the north; Northumberland, Durham, and North Yorkshire to the east; on Lancashire to the South; and the Irish Sea on the west.
