Alston is a small town in Cumbria, North West England.
English is spoken fluently by all, although this may change through the course of Friday and Saturday nights.
Like much of Cumbria, after the Foot and Mouth incident a few years ago, many businesses combined and diversified, leaving Cumbria with a gastronomical edge.
Alston was once a place of many pubs considering its small size. There are less than 2000 people living on the whole moor and there was until recent years a total of 10 pubs. Each pub had its own individual character and many of were free houses, serving local beers from the microbreweries of Cumbria. In 2014 just four pubs remained open and one hotel/Restaurant (Alston House), although the Cumberland and Victoria also provide accommodation. Here is a guide to the pubs of Alston Moor.
The world's a big place.
