Rosley Parish Cumbria

  • Description

    "Rosley is a small scattered farming community just north of the Lake District National Park and close to the Scottish border. Ten miles south-west of Carlisle it tucks neatly into the triangle of Caldbeck, Wigton and Dalston. Rosley village has two main centres of population: they are known locally as top Rosley, situated on the B5305 and Rosley crossroads. Top Rosley is largely residential with a number of dwellings having been added in recent years around the courtyard of a former farm. Rosley crossroads is some mile and a half away; here we find the village hall, the church and the school nestling among a few more houses. There are a number of other dwellings and farms surrounding the two centres. The village of Curthwaite lies about one mile from the school and hall and now has the only remaining pub in the parish the Royal Oak...."
