Department for Transport Statistics
The Department for Transport (DfT) produce connectivity and accessibility statistics.
Accessibility statistics provide a local-level measure of travel time to key services (covering food stores, education, health care, town centres and employment centres).
Connectivity statistics provide a local-level measure of travel time to more strategically significant destinations (airports, larger rail stations and major road junctions).

Geographical Barriers to Services
Another measure of accessibility of essential services in Cumbria is the 'Geographical Barriers to Services' sub domain of the Indices of Multiple Deprivation (IMD). This measures the level of deprivation in Cumbria based on road distance to a GP, shop, primary school and post office. A briefing is available at the link below:
More information about the IMD can be found here.
