Carl Bevan, 44, Divisional Port Manager for Associated British Ports, lives in Stainton near Milnthorpe

Carl jumped at the chance to develop his career in Cumbria and live on the edge of The Lake District.


As well as being a keen fell walker, Carl enjoys playing cricket in Cumbria.

“When I moved to Cumbria, I joined Sedgwick Cricket Club and it’s a breath of fresh air,” he said. “I coach there on a Monday night and there are 50 kids that come along. It’s incredible, a hive of activity.

“I’ve met outstanding, passionate people there and have come to regard them as friends. They’ve been great at introducing me to the area.

“I’m growing my knowledge of the great pubs and restaurants in the South Lakes. I play cricket with Rish, the Head Chef at Gilpin Spice, and the food there is a dream.

“I keep pinching myself in terms of where I live. I walk the dog in the morning, see the fells in the distance and it’s so peaceful and beautiful.

“Life in Cumbria is fantastic.”
