Alston is a small town in Cumbria, England on the River South Tyne. It is one of the highest elevation towns in the country, at about 1,000 feet (300 m) above sea level.
Historically the area has been mined for silver, lead, , zinc, coal and fluorspar.
In the 13th century, the area was better known as the silver mines of Carlisle, silver was found in a high proportion and was used to create coinage in the Royal Mint established in Carlisle for the purpose. Most mining was very small scale until the mid-18th century.
The biggest mine owner in the area was the London Lead Company; this Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) organisation with enlightened employment policies established an interest in the area during the early 18th century. In 1745, it began construction of a school, a library, a sanitary house, a surgeon’s house, a market hall with clock tower, a laundry and a ‘ready-money’ shop in Nenthead, four miles away.
The last mines closed in the 1950s but as of 2005 Ayle colliery was still active.
The earliest evidence of population in the area comes from pottery fragments, flint tools and a gold basket-earring found in one of two barrows excavated in,these were dated between 2000 BC and 1700 BC.
Evidence of Roman activity in the area comes from the earth remains of Whitley Castle, thought to be the Roman fort of Epiacum built and rebuilt by the Sixth and Twentieth Legions between the 2nd and 3rd centuries. The fort’s main purpose was to extract and protect lead and silver deposits in the upper reaches of the south Tyne valley.
The population census figures show that at its peak during 1831 the population of the parish of Alston Moor was 6,858 people. Today that figure is about 2,000. The population of the town of Alston was 1128 according to the 2001 Census.The community has its own website which is a result of the Cybermoor Project which has brought the Internet to almost every home on Alston Moor, and broadband to many. The problem of the area’s relative remoteness compared to other areas of England was solved by utilising IEEE 802.11 technology to construct the network infrastructure.

I'd had her a long time and was sad to see her go, but the guy who removed the car was so professional about it, it was easier than I thought. I would definitely recommend you to anybody in the future." Les & Jackie Eales
