Cargo is a small village near the river Eden on the Solway Plain. Cargo is about 3 12 miles (5.6 km) northwest of Carlisle in Cumbria in the North West of England. The name Cargo reflects a combination of two languages; from the Celtic word carreg meaning "rock" and from the Old Norse word haugr meaning "hill".
