While you are in the village you should look at the famous stone cross in St Mary’s Church yard. The cross which is thought to date back to Viking times is still in good condition occupying pride of place in the churchyard. It is a slender red sandstone, 14 ft high cross, set in a stepped stone base, with carvings representing a mix of Viking and Christian symbols. Among the symbols are the crucifixion and a pagan god, Loki. It is the tallest ancient cross in England and is considered of great importance in that it shows the transition from pagan to Christian beliefs.
Two 10th century ‘Hogback’ tombstones can also be found within the church. The graveyard contains a cork tree, planted in 1833, the most northerly in Europe. The tool-shed built of stones from the original church, is now a listed building.
Close to the village is Blengdale Forest, which offers superb walking along the River Bleng under the cover of the trees. From here is a good walk to the ancient packhorse bridge known as ‘Monks Bridge’, on Cold Fell. The Bleng valley is situated on the north side of the village as you head o
The village’s scattered buildings are an interesting mix of the old and new, with the oldest building, now the town hall and library, dating from 1628.
