Welcome to the website of the parish and village of Bampton, which encapsulates the surrounding areas of Bampton Grange, Burnbanks, Butterwick, Rosgill and Knipe. This website is a resource for the residents as well as tourists, who come to view the outstanding natural beauty of our lake district setting.
The roads around Bampton have recently been surface-dressed. Please drive slowly on gritty roads.
PARISH COUNCIL VACANCY
Thursday 19 May 2022: Following a resignation, the Parish Council currently has a Parish Councillor Vacancy. Please see the following notice:
In February 2022, the residents and friends of Bampton Valley came together to raised £400,000 to 'Save a Pub for the Valley’. This enables us to purchase the Mardale Inn and to commence refurbishment work.
The Mardale Inn opened on July 1st, 2022 - see their website for opening times.

A local recipe booklet from the Community Support Group will soon be available from the Village Shop. In addition to the recipes, it is full of photographs of local interest. So, in addition to giving you some new ideas to try, it could make an ideal present. Any profits from the book will be shared between the Bampton Memorial Hall and Hospice at Home, Carlisle and North Lakeland.
