Osmotherley


Osmotherley is a civil parish in the South Lakeland district of Cumbria, located to the north of the town of Ulverston. There is no village of Osmotherley as such, but what could be considered a hamlet consisting two houses by St John's Parish Church and a couple of outlying farmsteads. This is on the route of the Cumbria Way, a 70 mile walking route from Ulveston to Carlisle. One of the houses by the church was once a primary school, which has since been converted for residential use. The village of Broughton Beck, about half a mile to the east of the church, is the largest settlement in the parish. The popultion of Osmotherley Civil Parish was 302 at the time of the 2011 Census. Since 2003 there has been a joint parish council for Egton with Newland, Mansriggs and Osmotherley. Historically, Osmotherley was a township in the ancient Parish of Ulverston in Lancashire.
