Friends of the Ullswater Way
Friends of the Ullswater Way celebrates the iconic landscape and the rich heritage of the Ullswater valley. We highlight its history and traditions, the people who live and work here and those who have been inspired by its beauty.
Ullswater has long inspired many of our finest artists to set down their easels and take up their palettes and brushes.
The VIrtual Art Gallery brings together over 40 works of art from the 1700s to the present day. It provides a unique insight into Ullswater's evolving landscape of people and place.
Watch this Slideshow for an introduction to the Virtual Art Gallery.
New Ullswater Bus
Connects holiday accommodation with Pooley Bridge, Howtown, Lowther Castle and Ullswater Steamers. This community initiative is being run as a pilot this year. The QR Code has all you need to know.
Why not take the minibus, leave the car at home and support the drive for more sustainable transport and reduced private vehicle traffic in the area.
During lockdown we began gathering a treasure-trove of information about the Ullswater Valley. Memories, old photos, archives of the local history society, wildlife sightings, documents, paintings and so much more. We extend a huge thank you to all our writers and photographers and to the community members who have shared their knowledge and their memories of life in the valley.
