Not sure what the selection criteria have been for the towns listed here? Stockport is not listed, and there are several important towns in Cumbria not mentioned at all: Appleby, Barrow-in-Furness, Whitehaven, Cockermouth, Maryport, Keswick, Kendal, Penrith... I'd also suggest allowing 'Carlisle' for the relevant answer as I've never known it be called the 'City of Carlisle', particularly as that is the name of the administrative district within which Carlisle lies. If Kirkby Lonsdale is here, why not Kirkby Stephen (also Cumbria)? Also, no Southport, Fleetwood, Carnforth...

Hello, taking all comments on board after a second look when I'm more awake I have adjusted the quiz description, title, hints, and answers to make this more clear.
