Rather interesting Barrow in Furness facts
Did you know that if you want an instant knighthood without having to give money to a political party the place to go is Piel Island off Barrow-in-Furness? The landlord of the Ship Inn there is known as the King of Piel Island, and he can make you a Knight of Piel Island if you buy a round of drinks for all present (so like Westminster but on a smaller scale). And into the bargain you will be fed and watered there for free if you are ever shipwrecked on its shores.
