Description

Eskdale is a valley in the west, wilder part of the Lake District. To its south-west, Birker Moor or Fell is an area of upland wilderness dotted with hill farms.

Sunderland was born at Whittington Hall near Kirkby Lonsdale. He successfully ran the family business of iron mining and smelting until retiring to a house at Ulverston, just south of the Lake District, in the early 1780s.
