The Priory

Author Simon Jenkins described our local Priory as ‘the most beautiful church in the north-west’ and we have to agree with him. It’s been a focus for Christian worship for more than 800 years, which is even longer than we’ve been making our puds.

Cartmel Racecourse

Things have changed at our local racecourse since the days of monks organising mule races. These days it’s all international jockeys and proper horses, and the competition is fiercer than ever. Well, what do you expect when our puddings are given as prizes?
