General news

The Keswick to Threlkeld Railway Path is impassable following the floods, but the Village Hall and Coffee Shop are both open.

For details of detours whilst the Railway Path is closed click here (opens in new window).

See other flood damage :

Due to routine maintenance, an upgrade and long overdue work on the hall floor following the 2015 floods, it is necessary to close the hall on the 29th, 30h and 31st March and the 18th, 19th and 20th April. The Coffee Shop will not be affected on these days. 

It is recognised and regretted that both periods cover Wednesdays and Thursdays and will disrupt certain activities.  The Trustees do apologise for this inconvenience.

Jenn Mattinson is collecting community stories about Blencathra and Threlkeld and Mungrisdale life on behalf of Keswick Museum. She has provided a quick update:

There are sand bag boxes distributed throughout Threlkeld (Village Hall Car Park, Jubilee Croft, Horse & Farrier Car Park, and Town Cross) which contain sand bags and shovels, and there is a dumpy bag of sand at each location.  The code for the lock on the boxes can be obtained from any parish councillor, village hall committee or Horse & Farrier.  Please remember these boxes are for use in emergencies.

John Hopper, who was evacuated to Threlkeld in 1939, has sent this lovely description of his happy memories of his time here during World War 2.

My early memories of being evacuated to Threlkeld are those of a six year-old, in September 1939, being bundled on to a train with my nine year old sister, Dorothy and eight other girls bound for Penrith.

Les, John, Sheila and Madeleine attended the Gateway Hotel, Penrith for Cumbria in Bloom Prizegiving.  We came away with a Silver Certificate and a self-watering planter which was won by Sheila.

We would like to thank all who donated, planted, watered and cleaned up around their premises.

Special comments were made regarding the hanging baskets and gardens on entry to the car park of the Horse and Farrier Inn.

Would like to thank all who donated and supported our Bingo and Coffee Evening. We raised £354 which will be used to help pay for our Christmas Lunch in December.

Threlkeld Judging Day is Monday 4th July.

Please try to make our village presentable.
