English: Aspatria is a town in Cumbria, England, and lies half way between Maryport and Wigton, on the A596. It is about away from the coast. The church of St Kentigern's is the site of some pre-Norman stone crosses. The name "Aspatria" is Roman in origin and derives from the Latin Asp meaning a serpent and atrium meaning a clearing, so a literal translation could be "the clearing of the serpent" When the first Christians arrived in the town, they were quick to adopt the Roman legend, incorporating it to suit their own beliefs. St George was adopted as the patron saint of the town and a statue depicting the Christian Saint slaying a vile serpent (seen as the symbol of Roman pagan gods) can still be seen in the centre of the town.
