    According to my parishes in Cumbria map (never go without it or my camera these days), the adjoining parishes to Hawkshead are:

    Windermere St. Martin (East across the lake)
    Colton (south)
    Grasmere (north)
    Ulverston (west)

    These are further divided down with chapels:

    Hawkshead parish - Satterthwaite, Sawrey, Low Wray, Brathay
    Windermere parish - Troutbeck
    Colton parish - Rusland, Finsthwaite, Haverthwaite.
    Grasmere parish - Langdale, Ambleside, Rydal.
    Ulverston parish - Coniston, Torver, Blawith, Lowick, Egton-cum-Newland, Osmotherley (north to south)

    The nearest to Hawkshead would be Coniston, Langdale & Ambleside.

    Thank you, Helen...........

    I think my lot were mostly in the parish of Hawkshead, but the towns/villages mentioned so far are:
    Coniston
    Coniston Water
    Waterhead
    Thwaite
    Blawith
    and my personal favourite (because I've never found anything about it) Hollinbank.

    Some of them give their address as Thwaite, Coniston, Hawkshead or Hauxhead (in the early ones).

    Now I'll be able to venture further afield a little at a time.

    I got it from one of the local records offices. It's been brilliant for the PoW photo project.

    From memory there is a programme called 'parish locator' which gives you the names of parishes within a given radius. I used it several years ago - this might be it...

    Parish Locator for Windows


    sorry I can't check it as my system doesn't run windows
