Unauthorised Drone Flights on Whitbarrow

Natural England prohibits the flying of drones over SSSI designated land and this is supported by The Landowners of Crosthwaite and Lyth who prohibit the flying of drones over all their landholding, SSSI designated or not.

In exceptional circumstances drone operators who comply with all Civil Aviation Authority regulations may, with the prior written approval of both Natural England and The Landowners of Crosthwaite and Lyth, operate a drone for specific purposes.

We would be grateful for continued reports of unauthorised drone activity.

Crosthwaite Post Office

at the Argles Memorial Hall, Crosthwaite

The Memorial Hall Committee has been working hard behind the scenes to secure a Post Office Outreach service at the Hall.

This will run every Monday (excluding Bank Holidays) from 8.45am until 10.15am in the Meeting Room.

The Post Office has allocated 90 minutes a week based on the number of customers accessing the previous service at the Punch Bowl. If more people use the new Outreach service the hours will increase but may reduce if the service is not well supported.


Look out for the new Foot Care service
Crosthwaite Memorial hall.

Footcare appointments available on some Friday mornings. Contact Debbie, Registered Foot Health Practitioner.

Housing Needs Assessment – 2021 Update

The results of the assessment are now published in the form of a Summary, a Primary Data Report and a Secondary Data Report.

The Housing Needs survey outcome forms a major part of evidence-gathering for a Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) for Crosthwaite & Lyth Parish. The results will be fed into a larger document looking at a range of aspects of the Parish: housing; natural environment; community facilities, sustainability and local businesses. The document then goes through further refinement cycles through community consultation, and discussion with the Lake District National Park. Finally, there is a community referendum on the refined version.
