Welcome to our village

The ancient village of Bolton lies on a hill above the River Eden in the picturesque Eden Valley in Cumbria. The small, friendly village is four miles west of the historic market town of Appleby-in-Westmorland, and 11 miles east of the larger, equally historic market town of Penrith. It is minutes off the A66, and 15 minutes away from the M6 and a mainline station. The Lake District National Park, the Westmorland Dales and the North Yorkshire Dales are within easy reach. The magnificent views from the village and the strong community spirit contribute to its ever-growing popularity. Unlike many Cumbrian villages, the percentage of second and holiday homes is very low, and community life is year-long. It centres on the Memorial Hall, the pub (the New Crown Inn), the church and chapel, the primary school and a popular nursery. A fantastic new play park was officially opened in April 2019.


Parish Council Vacancies

There is currently one vacancy for a Parish Councillor:

  • Notice of Vacancy 1.
  • We have been given the go ahead to co-opt councillors. Please consider joining the team to help support and shape the Bolton community. We need people to represent a variety of community interests. It needn’t take much of your time – you would have a duty to read the brief for, and attend PC meetings once every two months, but if you cannot attend you just need to send an apology and explanation to the Clerk. How much time you devote really depends on how much or little you want to get involved.

    If you are interested, please contact the Clerk see here.
