Welcome to Lindal & Marton

This website is a mine of information about the villages of Lindal-in-Furness and Marton in South Cumbria. The two villages share a parish council, church, village hall, pre-school, cricket club, bowling club, pub, an active residents' association, and an "outstanding" primary school.

The community is centrally located in the Furness area, and has good transport links to shops, work, education, and leisure facilities at Dalton, Barrow, Ulverston, Kendal, and Lancaster.

We'd like to extend a special warm welcome to anyone moving into the villages for the first time. Please use this website to get acquainted with what goes on, and don't be shy about mucking in with village clubs and events. New ideas and enthusiasm help to keep our community vibrant.

We also recommend that you visit the Lindal & Marton Primary School website at: lindalandmartonprimaryschool.co.uk

Aspects of Lindal & Marton

"Aspects of Lindal & Marton" is our village newsletter, published and distributed monthly to all households in the parish by a band of dedicated volunteers. Aspects is sponsored by Lindal & Marton Parish Council, St Peter's Church PCC, and members of the community. See our Aspects page for more information and selected past articles.

Parish Council Minutes

Lindal & Marton is one of three Parish Councils in Barrow Borough. Parish Council meetings normally take place in the Buccleuch Hall on the first Thursday of each month, and are open to the public. The Parish Council Clerk issues an Agenda a few days before each meeting, and issues Minutes a few days afterwards. Agendas and full Minutes are published on our Downloads page.

LAMPS The Early YearsLAMPS The Early Years

July 2013. A new 20-page book about LAMPS has been published by Lindal historian, Roy Mason, priced at £3.

The Early Years tells the story of how the school was established in Victorian times. It seeks to give an insight into how the vision of two inspired men was brought to fruition. Many of the problems they faced are not unfamiliar to the present day, yet such difficulties were overcome. The original building survives as fit for purpose and so do the alterations that were made in the first half century of its existence. It is a fitting tribute to the builders and also to the Rev Paddy Morgan and Edward Wadham that it still serves the communities of Lindal and Marton.

This book may be purchased directly from St. Peter's Church, Lindal, Lindal & Marton Primary School, or Barrow Archives and Local Studies Centre. Alternatively contact royston.wri@tiscali.co.uk to arrange postal delivery.

Lindal Pre-school & Toddlers

Lindal Pre-school & Toddlers provides OFSTED registered care for pre-school children aged from 2 yrs 6 months at the Buccleuch Hall on a sessional basis. The group also provides Lunch Clubs on certain days. Rising 5's sessions are held up at LAMPS and allow children in their pre-school year to become familiar with the school building before the momentous move up to ‘big school’.
