An update from the Lake District National Park on the Keswick to Threlkeld Railway Path

Threlkeld Parish Council are looking at updating the Parish Plan (Community Led Plan) and are looking to see if it is possible to get a representative from each of the active groups within Threlkeld, and any individuals who would like to be involved in creating a steering group to take part in revising and updating the Parish Plan (Community Led Plan).  The plan is not a plan of the Parish Council, but of the whole community, so it would be beneficial to get input and support from all aspects of the village and the groups within it.  If you are interested in being involved please contact Ra

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

Yellow Dam crosses Gategill beck above Threlkeld village, close to the hunting kennels. It is privately owned and was created to provide a water supply and power for mining activities in the 1880's. It consists of a wall and a culvert (underground watercourse) with mining spoil placed on top to create a dam across the beck.
