Why South Cumbria is a great place to live, work and play

Barrow-in-Furness is located on the tip of the Furness peninsula which is located in South Cumbria across Morecambe Bay from Morecambe and Lancaster and the Irish Sea to the Isle of Man. The town is renowned for world class shipbuilding and more recently the design and build of world leading nuclear submarines, however, the town has lots more employment opportunities to offer and has a high percentage of jobs for tradesmen.

The location attracts many individuals and families to move to Barrow-in-Furness as it offers residents a unique work/life balance which provides a great environment for bringing up children and enjoying the outdoors. The town is surrounded by sea on three sides which offers lots of maritime pastimes and also areas of outstanding beauty for walking and cycling. Barrow lies approximately 20 miles from the Lake District National Park which makes it a great location for accessing the natural beauty and ruggedness of the Lakeland hills and lakes.
