Businesses in Low Hesket Towns and Villages of Cumbria

Low Hesket

Low Hesket by Barbara BallardLow Hesket is a small village on the A6. A pub serves the local villagers.
Farming is the main occupation in the surrounding countryside. A nearby 100-acre lake, Wadling tarn, is a carp fishing site. A castle, Hewin, once lay on the north-east shore, but its remains have vanished. It was supposedly a stronghold of Swaine, a Cumberland king.
