Smithfield is a village located in the parish of Kirklinton approximately 8 miles north of Carlisle in Cumbria, United Kingdom, and has a population of around 250. The main road through the village, the A6071, leads to the nearby market towns of Longtown (west, 4 miles) and Brampton (east, 6 miles).
