Kirkby Stephen is located in Northwest England's Cumbria County. This small rural town is located in the sparsely populated hilly countryside along the A685. The library seems to be the center of the town with the community and council centers both present on the premises as well as being the focal point of information and services for all of the local councils and home to the general and local information stations.
The Parish church of Kirkby Stephen is a popular tourist attraction. Called the Cathedral of the Dales it is the smallest church in Cumbria. The site this church was built on has been home to three different churches since 1170. This remarkable church is located near the market square and is full of many ancient monuments. Inside the church you will find a relief of the Norse god Loki who is shown as being bound in chains. This relief is here to serve as a remembrance to the Vikings who settled the area around the end of the first millennium.
Take time to wander outside of Kirkby Stephen for a little while and you can visit Pendragon Castle. This castle was home to Uther Pendragon, King Arthur's father. It was said to have been built some 600 years ago shortly after he supposedly found and battled a large dragon-like serpent during his time in Cumbria. The castle has strong ties to the Arthurian legend and is a popular stop for Arthurian buffs and others alike. It is rumored that Urther Pendragon was poisoned in this very castle.
