Valley Arts

A VALLEY ARTS EXHIBITION AND SALE at Glaramara House, Seatoller took place on on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd October, 2017


Thorneythwaite Farm- social evening at the Institute

On 1st September, 72 valley residents and others gathered at the Borrowdale Institute to hear about Ian Hall’s new book “Thorneythwaite Farm, Borrowdale – the 1,000 year story of a Lakeland farm and its valley.” Thorneythwaite has featured prominently in local conversation in recent times.



Welcome to the Borrowdale Story. Our aim is two-fold:

a) to enrich the experience of our visitors, encouraging all who come here to understand what makes it so special, support our local businesses and perhaps make return visits to learn – and enjoy – more of the valley.

b) to enhance the experience of the local community spread across 6 hamlets within the Valley.

Originally a local church-led initiative, we are a group of Valley residents working together on a voluntary basis to produce the interpretation boards, leaflets and other resources.  This has helped us discover our shared history and identity.   In particular, grants can be made available to help fund activities which contribute to either or both of the two overriding aims of the Borrowdale Story.  More about this and the project’s background can be found on About Us.

Visitor and local participation is encouraged and we welcome feedback for the Story to continue evolving so do Contact Us.

Or simply browse and enjoy!

By the nature of being in the Lake District, with some of wettest weather in England, the forecast is always of great interest to visitors and locals alike! Current weather conditions and forecasts can be found on sites below:
