Threlkeld cottages

Threlkeld cottagesThrelkeld nestles under the shadow of Blencathra which shelters it from the north. The village lies four miles east of Keswick at the junction of the main valley route between Penrith and Keswick and the Vale of St John that heads south, past Thirlmere, onto the southern Lakes. The village winds along a narrow road and is now bypassed by the A66. Steep-sided Blencathra (also called Saddleback) looms over Threlkeld with three ridges leading to the summit from the village. This fellside village, built of distinctive brown Skiddaw slate, has a history of lead mining and quarrying going back centuries. Yet man’s settlement in the Threlkeld Valley goes back to Neolithic times, around 5000 years ago. The stone circle at nearby Castlerigg (pictured) and the ancient settlement below Threlkeld Knotts, on the opposite side of the valley to the village, are witness to this.
