North West England is one of the regions of England. Two large conurbations, centred on the cities of Liverpool and Manchester, dominate the south of the region. The north of the region (that is, north Lancashire and Cumbria) is largely rural. This has caused questions to be asked whether the region should be altered so that Cumbria is transferred to the North East region (creating a new North region of England), as currently there are stark contrasts within the North West region.
