About Our Village
Welcome to the website for Castle Carrock, a thriving little village nestling at the foot of the Pennines in north eastern corner of Cumbria, on the western edge of the North Pennines AONB. Whether you live here, are visiting, or are just being nosey, you will find a thriving community with a primary school, an award winning pub, The Duke of Cumberland, a village hall and a church, St Peters. We also host an annual award winning music festival, Music on the Marr.
We have a very strong community here – and we have an autumn show, lots of events in the village hall, an annual carnival, a church which has recently been restored, red squirrels, a leek club and all sorts of other village activities go on. Most importantly, people look out for each other. There’s lots to do in the village, there’s really nice accommodation and most importantly, we suggest to everyone – Please dance! Please have a look at our community Facebook page to keep up to date with all goings on in the village.
As of the end of September 2019 we have raised over £12,000 in just 9 months from fundraising events and donations to help fix The Watson Institute. Thank you to everyone who has contributed in any way. The last event for the moment, a lovely sounding Wine and Cheese evening in The Watson Institute, is on Saturday October 26th - call Val Bassindale on 07881 520520 for full details !
