Grounds and nearby

The village’s long history is found not only in the church but also by the remains of the middle-age Aikton Castle, and records of several droving routes. The pub ‘The Highland Drove’ was once the stopping place for the drovers, whose animals were watered at the Dub just outside the village, and now home to rare Great Crested Newts.

Great Salkeld has long been celebrated for its rural beauties and the extensive and diversified views which it commands, is bounded on the south by Eden Hall, on the north and west by Lazonby, and on the east by the river Eden. Carlisle Cathedral and Carlisle Treasure Hunt Trail are about 15 miles away.
