CARTMEL
Is a small market-town, situated on the peninsula formed by the Kent and Leven rivers. The most interesting object, as is usually the case in all our small towns and villages, is the church, dedicated to St. Mary, an ancient and handsome structure, formerly a priory, and containing several fine monuments.
