About us



The club is situated on the western edge of the English Lake District in a very rural area. We meet near the village of Gosforth. Club members enjoy the benefits of a beautiful unspoilt coastal fringe backed by the mountains of the Lake District National Park. The small resort of St Bees founded by an Irish princess is to the West and to the East are the lakes of Ennerdale Water and Wastwater. Wastwater is the deepest lake in England and it's valley also has  England's highest mountain 'Scafell Pike' (pictured below) and the smallest church in England at it's foot. To the south is the coastal village of Ravenglass with it's Roman bathhouse, narrow gauge railway and nearby Muncaster Castle. The medieval town of Egremont is our largest town. The primary employer is the nuclear reprocessing plant at Sellafield. Sellafield is the site of the world's first commercial nuclear power plant 'Calder Hall' opened by Queen Elizabeth II in 1956 and operated safely until it closed in 2002.
