The village of Threlkeld in Cumbria is situated in the Northern Lake District, 4 miles east of Keswick and 14 miles west of Penrith beneath Blencathra mountain. Threlkeld Web is run for the Parish Council and provides all you need to know about local news, information and what's on in and around Threlkeld and runs alongside the existing "Beneath Blencathra" newsletter.

The launch of public fundraising in support of the reinstatement of the railway path has been announced!

Following the 2015 floods which destroyed bridges on the Keswick to Threlkeld Railway Path, there are now new alternative routes available.  There are information panels near the path signposting the new routes or see the map here.
