Our strengths

Our strengths are definitely in our knowledge or our “Home” area which includes

  • Cumbria, Lancashire and the Dales
  • The English Lake District
  • Duddon
  • West Cumbria
  • Eden
  • South Lakeland
  • Carlisle
  • High & Low Furness
  • Barrow and Furness Peninsular
  • Lancaster
  • Morecambe 
  • Carnforth 
  • and surrounding areas

What makes us different from the rest?

We know and understand our area, its idiosyncrasies, its highly “specific and local” geography and demography and just as importantly, the local economy. Urban areas like Barrow in Furness, Kendal, Carlisle and Workington may well be in the same county and within easy reach of one another by road and rail, but they have very marked differences. The same applies to the market towns and villages which differ tremendously for its near neighbour let alone its adjacent district. 
 
With the economy in the county of Cumbria and north Lancashire there can be significant variations in types of housing, prosperity and movement of labour. Our area also has a very high proportion of listed buildings with many fine houses from the Victorian era and earlier. Interestingly, Cumbria has more listed church buildings than the rest of the country which demonstrates its pronounced localised culture and geography.
 
But with us it is not just about buildings, we have extensive knowledge of the rural aspect of our geographical area and its marker places, such as 
  •  Farming
  • Agriculture
  • Horticulture
  • Tourism
  • Manufacturing
  • Retail
  • Rental and Investment 
To mention but a few, and we are skilled in working with the old and traditional as well as the new and state of the art!
