Westmorland is one of the traditional 39 Counties of England. Its main towns are Ambleside, Appleby-in-Westmorland[?] (the County Town), Kendal[?], Kirkby Stephen[?], Milnthorpe[?] and Windermere[?].

The County contains large parts of the Lake District National Park. The county ceased to exist in 1974 when it was combined with Cumberland and parts of Lancashire and Yorkshire to create Cumbria.
