Appleby is correct - former county town of Westmorland

Inkerman and Sebastopol were battles in the Crimean War (1850's)- can't help with Batty White Hold

Blea Moor, Ribblehead, Mallerstang, Aisgill, Dent. Gayle is bit far from the line. (Chapel) and (St Leonards) could be Chapel-en-le-Dale?

Is this enough to be getting on with for now?

Wassail! V
