Road and house at Catterlen by Andrew SmithIn the hamlet of Catterlen is historic Catterlen Hall. Its original pele tower is on the north end of an L-shaped building, added in 1577. The manor of Catterlen once belonged to John Christian Curwen of Workington Hall, then to the duke of Norfolk, and following that to Henry Howard of Greystoke Castle. A Primitive Methodist chapel was built in the village in 1867.
