    Penrith is a market town and civil parish in the county of Cumbria, England. It lies less than 3 miles outside the bounds of the Lake District National Park. Historically in Cumberland, Penrith's local authority is currently Eden District Council, which is based in the town. Penrith was formerly the seat of Penrith Urban and Rural District councils. From 1974 to 2015, it was an unparished area with no town council, but a civil parish was reintroduced in 2015 as Penrith Town Council. The first elections to this took place on 7 May 2015.

    The etymology of the name has been debated. Several toponymists argue for a derivation from the Cumbric or Welsh pen 'head, chief, end' + Cumbric rid, Welsh rhyd 'ford'. On this basis, the name would mean "chief ford", "hill ford", "ford end" or Whaley's suggestion: "the head of the ford" or "headland by the ford".

    Penrith, however, lies about 1 mile from the nearest crossing of the River Eamont at Eamont Bridge. An alternative has been suggested consisting of the same pen element meaning "head, end, top" + the equivalent of Welsh rhudd "crimson". The name "red hill" may refer to Beacon Hill, to the north-east of today's town. There is also a place called Redhills to the south-west, near the M6 motorway.

    The Roman fort of Voreda occupied the site now known as Old Penrith, five miles north of the town.

    The Roman road from Manchester to Carlisle ran through the area. Excavations before an extension to Penrith Cemetery showed the road had survived better at the edges of the field. The cobble and gravel surfaces seemed to have been ploughed out at the centre. The road was constructed by excavating a wide, shallow trench below subsoil level. Large cobbles were probably obtained nearby, as they did not appear frequently in the subsoil in the excavated area. They were added to the excavated subsoil dumped back into the cut to form a stable foundation, canted at the centre of the road.
