Ullswater Heritage Knowledge Bank

Welcome to the Ullswater Heritage Knowledge Bank, a project of Friends of the Ullswater Way which celebrates the cultural and natural heritage of the Ullswater Valley. Since September 2020 this community-led project has been collecting stories, memories, photographs and articles which we hope will bring the rich heritage of the valley alive for both residents and visitors.

The project is still in its infancy but we hope you will enjoy exploring the contributions we have received so far. We also hope you will step forward with your own stories and memories. There is a form at the bottom of this page for doing so.

Our sincerest thanks go to all those who have contributed to the Heritage Knowledge Bank so far and to those who have supported the project in other ways.

We have made every attempt to verify the accuracy of the information, using recognised sources. However, if you find anything you consider to be inaccurate please let us know.
