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
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
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
& 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
LAMPS 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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’.
