About Alston Parish Council


PARISH COUNCILS form the tier of local government closest to the communities they represent; they are the “third layer” in counties such as Cumbria which have district as well as county councils.
ALSTON MOOR PARISH COUNCIL looks after the easternmost part of Cumbria, high in the North Pennines, bordering Northumberland and Co Durham. Its eastern situation, isolated from the main part of the county, is reflected in its inclusion in both the diocese of Newcastle, and the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
