Uldale, Cumbria

Uldale is a small village in Cumbria, England. It is about five miles from Caldbeck, two miles from Ireby with which it forms the civil parish of Ireby and Uldale and Aughertree, 11 miles from Wigton and 12 miles from Cockermouth. Uldale church (the old "church") is located one mile outside Uldale yet only half a mile from Ireby. One theory is that the Plague forced the movement of the village to its present location and so only those who were well could make the walk to the church.
