Feeling peckish? 

Sticklebarn is now open, serving a reduced menu to allow our team to get used to our new ways of working. We have limited indoor seating which must be booked in advance, outdoor seating is also available and we are offering a new takeaway service. We’ve introduced new safety measures including screens at our till point, and waymarked routes. We’ll also only be accepting card payment. We look forward to welcoming you back and know that you’ll support us to make this a safe experience for everyone.

History

Historic image of Langdale valley

Langdale through a lens - one family's love of the valley captured on film. 

Like many of us today, celebrated historian George Macauley Trevelyan fell completely in love with the Langdale valley during his family holidays here. So much so, that he was inspired to become its chief protector. This year we’re sharing some unique photos of their experience in the valley – 100 years on.
