About the location

Backbarrow was once a busy mill town with many corn mills dotted along the river. In 1711, the trade turned to iron due to the large iron blast furnace built in the village. Alongside the cotton mills, Backbarrow was a thriving area. In 1868 an extension of the Furness Railway was built through the village to transport iron and products from the mills.

Though the line was closed in the 1960s with the demise of the forge, the section from Haverthwaite to Lakeside, which passes through Backbarrow, remains open as a heritage railway – Now referred to as the Haverthwaite Steam Railway.

The village is now primarily residential, but the village's central location makes it ideal for exploring the Lake District or perhaps visiting Cartmel (8-miles) to watch the horseraces. Nearby in Ulverston (7-miles), passing by the Sir John Barrow Monument on Hoad Hill (a replica of Eddystone Lighthouse), you can take the Coastal Route to Barrow with Conishead Priory and miles of shingle beach. Head on down to Roa Island and have a wander around the lifeboat station and take the little ferry over to Piel Island and visit the King of Piel and the seals.

Attractions within 3-miles include the Lakeside Aquarium, Haverthwaite Railway, Lakeland Motor Museum and the Windermere Lake Cruises linking you to Windermere, Brockhole Visitors Centre and Ambleside.
