Troutbeck Village Map

Troutbeck's Ancient Pattern of Roads

The old drovers' road that runs through Troutbeck village follows a line of old wells, about a hundred feet above the valley floor. The newer A592 road stays closer to the river, before climbing to 1500 feet over the Kirkstone Pass.

The whole village is criss-crossed by an ancient network of footpaths and bridleways radiating from Jesus Church to settlements on both sides of the Troutbeck valley.

And high above the valley, a bridleway follows the track of an old Roman Road on the mountain ridge, all the way along High Street to Ullswater and beyond.
