Dillicar Township, 1848

DILLIKER, a township, in the parish and union of Kendal, Lonsdale ward, county of Westmorland, 8½ miles (N.E. by E.) from Kendal; containing 85 inhabitants. It is bounded on the east by the Lune. At Low Ghill in the township, is a station on the Lancaster and Carlisle railway, for the traffic of Sedbergh and Dent, and of the farms which stud that portion of the beautiful vale of Lune. Here an embankment occurs, 90 feet high, with a considerable mountain stream below it, which passes under the line by means of a tunnel, bored to the length of 100 yards through the solid rock: the line then takes a western curve, skirting Dilliker Fell at an elevation of 200 feet above the river Lune, and proceeds by the Grayrigg Fells to Low Borrow-bridge.
