Like other historic counties, the county of Westmorland no longer exists today. In the past, it was part of the North West Region of the UK, with Kendal acting as headquarter or main county town. Today, Westmorland has been encompassed in the county of Cumbria, with the Cumbria County Council being located at The Courts, Carlisle, CA3 8NA.
The historic population census of 1911 revealed at that time a population of 63.575 people. Before being encompassed in the county of Cumbria, Westmorland had a population of 67.180 people (1971 population census).
