The local area guide to living in Milnthorpe

Once a port, Milnthorpe is now a quaint and picturesque market town. As part of Cumbria, it’s nestled on the edge of the Lake District National park and sits just north of Manchester, south of Carlisle.

The limestone 19th century Church of St Thomas plays a key to this medieval town’s architecture, and in July each year, it hosts an art exhibition to showcase locally crafted ceramics, paintings and pottery.

Information about the local residents

In the last count in March 2015, Milnthorpe’s population was cited at 2,194 people. Local residents’ professions are wide-ranging. Healthcare, retail, construction, farming, automotive repairs, and education are just some of the most common. Locals’ average age is equally wide-ranging, with the majority between 30-60 years old and British.

When it comes to transport, half of Milnthorpe’s households own at least one car – no real surprise given the close proximity of major cities like Carlisle, Liverpool and Manchester. And, of course, your own transport means exploring the coast and sprawling nature of the nearby Yorkshire Dales and Lake District National Park.

Nearby schools

Milnthorpe and its surrounding area is anything but short of choice when it comes to schools (perhaps one of the reasons education is a key profession within this locale).

There are many state primary schools to choose from, with the highly regarded Milnthorpe Primary based in the heart of town. Other top primaries include Arnside National Church of England (CofE) School and Heversham St Peter's CofE Primary School – both just a short drive from Milnthorpe.

Though Milnthorpe’s own town centre is something of a beauty spot. Each Friday a local farmers' market takes place in the central square. Expect fresh fruit and veg in abundance, with local butchers selling choice cuts, freshly baked bread and patisserie stalls. Pretty cottages, green lawns, leafy trees and a 19th century church simply add to the charm of the setting.
