A huge amount of information about the Mossops has been collected by Marshall and Jean Mossop.  They have now set up their own Mossop web site.  If you suspect that you have Mossop ancestors in Cumberland they will probably be happy to help you.

The old church of St Bridgit Beckermet is not in the village but some way down towards the sea (grid ref. NY015061, near Middlebank on the OS 1:50,000 series, sheet 89). The new church of St Bridgit Beckermet was built in the village of Calder Bridge in 1840.
