Barrow-in-Furness is a town in the county of Cumbria, in North West England. Lying within the historic county boundaries of Lancashire, it is the largest town in the Borough of Barrow-in-Furness and the largest town in Furness. Barrow, as it is colloquially known, is a coastal town along Morecambe Bay and is bounded to the west by the Irish sea. Barrow expanded rapidly from a small hamlet in 1840s to become a large town by 1880. The original impetus came with the development of the Furness Railway Company, but by the late 19th century it had also developed the world's largest steel-making facility, besides becoming the major shipbuilding centre that it remains today.
