The Newby Bridge

Newby Bridge is a small hamlet in the Lake District, Cumbria, although historically it was in Lancashire. Newby Bridge is located several miles west of Grange-over-Sands and is on the River Leven, close to the southern end of Windermere. The hamlet is the site of an intermediate halt on the Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway. Whilst the main land use is sheep farming, tourism plays a significant part, with the Newby Bridge Caravan Park accommodating many guests each year.
