Grizedale Arts is leading an initiative to buy The Farmer's Arms at Lowick Green / Spark Bridge in collaboration with its local community.



The traditional inn is an instantly recognisable British landmark in town and country alike: at its best, it is a place of distinctive character, of welcome, nurture and exchange.

For centuries, The Farmer’s Arms at Spark Bridge saw people, goods and ideas come and go from its position at the mouth of the beautiful Crake Valley. Dreams were dreamt, plans were hatched, occasions celebrated, and ambitions realised.
After a year of neglect, Grizedale Arts propose to return this historic inn on the edge of the Lake District National Park to its place at the heart of the community, where it can once again inspire and nurture both locals and visitors.
