...
Camden proposes Ireby for the Arbeia of the Romans, where the Bercarii Tigrinensis were garrisoned, but advances nothing in favour of his opinion. The situation is such as the Romans never made choice of for a camp or garrison, and there remains no vestiges of either. By its being in a deep glen, among surrounding hills, where there is no pass to guard, or country to protect, a body of men would be of no use.

Westward of Penrith, and not far from the Head of the River Eln, stands
Ierby, a considerable Market Town: It is suppos'd to to be the Arbea of the Ancients, where the Barcarii Tigrinensis were garrison'd. At the Conquest it was a Gentleman's Seat, and one Village, but now it is become two Manors, the one called Ireby Alta, or High Ireby, and the other Ireby Basse, or Low Ireby, and often Market Ireby, because tho' the other be the more ancient Town, yet this having been the Lands of great Men successively, and standing in a more convenient Place, hath always been of more Account, and enjoy'd the Privilege of holding a Fair and Market, which the other has not. ... The Lower is now the Lordship of the Musgraves of Crokedale, who are descended of the same Family.
The Market here is on Thursdays.
