The building used as Loweswater Village Hall was built in 1839 by John Marshall, MP and Lord of the Manor, as the local school, but started its life as the village hall in 1956. It is regularly used by local groups such as the 77 Club for meetings, the Vale of Lorton Community First Responders for training sessions, Loweswater Summer Fete, Derwent Scottish Country Dance Club‘s annual summer dance, etc. It is situated near the Kirkstile Inn and Loweswater Church about 1 mile from the lake at Loweswater. Enquiries about booking the hall should be made to the Caretakers, Tod and Sheila Reid on 01900 85718 or email them here.
