Flower Delivery to Skelton with Clare Florist

Skelton is a countryside parish and village in Cumbria’s Lake District. Although Skelton may appear to be simply a quiet hamlet, it is brimming somewhat unexpectedly with artists, writers, and local artisans. This charming landscape is also steeped in history and folklore, and it offers several annual events for visitors to North England.

History of Skelton

Although Skelton’s existing buildings date to the 18th and 19th centuries, the village itself was once part of Inglewood Forest. The ancestral Inglewood home, Hutton-in-the-Forest, is rumoured to be the “Castle of Hutton” referred to in the Arthurian tale of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. For over 600 years, the Skelton area has survived primarily through its agriculture. A number of small farms dot the countryside as a reminder of the region’s roots, although the area is now popular among artists and writers.

One of the most notorious events in Skelton’s history was the 1885 Netherby incident, in which three local men burged Netherby Hall and murdered one of their pursuers. A local memorial serves as a reminder of their execution by hanging in 1886.

Local Landmarks and Events

Perhaps Skelton’s most important annual event, the Skelton Agricultural Show boasts an annual attendance of 10,000 people. First held in the late 19th century, the Skelton Agricultural Show is a family event with a variety of horticultural and agricultural events and activities. Local horticulturalists display their flowers and plants, and classes are offered in a variety of creative endeavours. Apart from the Skelton Show, visitors to Skelton can tour the gardens at Hutton-in-the-Forest or take a vigourous nature walk at nearby Newton Moss.

The annual Potfest in the Park is another family festival that features pottery from artisans around the world. Finally, Skelton boasts several local art galleries, including the well-known Upfront Gallery and Puppet Theatre and Beckstone Art Gallery. There are numerous opportunities in Skelton to take in local creations and enjoy the lovely local scenery.
