A pleasant village near Penrith, with many 17th century cottages. The nearby Greystoke Castle [not open to the public], stands in a vast wooded park of some 6000 acres. Greystoke church, dating from 1255 is one of the largest in Cumbria. To the east of the village are three follies built by the 11th Duke of Norfolk - Fort Putnam, Bunkers Hill and Spire House.
