Culgaith, a Thriving Eden Valley Village
The first mention of the village’s Inn, the Black Swan, dates back to the 17th Century whilst All Saints Church was built later in 1758. The Midland Railway (Settle-Carlisle) was built through Culgaith between 1870-73 and this included a tunnel of 661 yards. The station was later opened 1880.
In addition to the Church, the village boasts a primary school, praised in a 2005 Ofsted inspection, a recreation ground, the Hazel Dene Garden Centre and the famous Black Swan Inn. It is conveniently located within easy reach of some of the most beautiful countryside in the North West of England. The Lake District, Pennines and Yorkshire Dales offer excellent opportunities for walking, hiking and mountain biking, whilst the adjacent River Eden provides one of the best trout and salmon rivers in England.
