Set at the confluence of the River Cocker and River Derwent, the Georgian town of Cockermouth is best known as the birthplace of William Wordsworth and the home base of the renowned Jennings Brewery. Unfortunately, its position beside two major rivers means it has suffered frequent episodes of flooding – most recently in 2009 and 2015, when much of the town centre was swamped.
