Rosthwaite, Borrowdale, Cumbria
For local government purposes Rosthwaite forms part of the civil parish of Borrowdale, the district of Allerdale, and the county of Cumbria. It is within the Workington constituency of the United Kingdom Parliament, and the North West England constituency of the European Parliament.
Rosthwaite is host to many interesting post-glacial geographical features. The town nestles underneath the How, a large roche moutonnée, with a smaller roche moutonnée being further to the west.
Near to and within Rosthwaite is also a set of terminal moraines which show the staggered retreat of the Stonethwaite Glacier. These are quite obvious, with the middle and best preserved moraine being found NY 258145.
