Point No 3 on the Town Trail - Kirkgate, Georgian Square. Most of the property was built in the early 1700's, replacing earlier buildings. Note the typical plain Cumberland windows in the small houses on the right, and the cobbled frontages, especially Stag house on the left. The cottage on the corner of MacKreth Row, now part of teh Swan Inn was once endowed as a hospice for six widows or unmarried women.

Plaque No 1 of the Cockermouth Town Trail. The Kirkgate Centre started life as a school in 1868 and was converted into an Art and Entertainments Centre in 1993. The "Bitter beck" runs alongside it; (bitter from the tannery effluents that flowed into it).

Market Place - point 18 on the Cockermouth Town trail. The market received its Charter in 1221. In 2008, with a substantial grant from the Market Towns Initiative, it became the first market town in the country to complete a major revitalization. Various artworks celebrate Dalton's Atomic Theory, Market Tolls, the local dialect and sheep counting numbers, Salathiel's Lion, Marvejols Twinning and Cousin Charley's Day among others.

Cockermouth Old Hall - demolished in 1973. A plaque in the car park commemorates the fact that Mary Queen of Scots stayed here as a guest of the Fletcher family.
