Welcome to Allithwaite
Upper Parish Council

The Parish of Allithwaite Upper comprises the villages of Lindale, Low and High Newton with a opulation of 824 according to the 2001 census. Lindale village is set to the north of Grange-over-ands on a hill overlooking Morecambe Bay. Situated close to the A590 and near the River Winster, this small village offers easy access to the Lake District National Park. To the north, lies the villages of Low and High Newton, now by-passed by the busy A590 road to Barrow-in-Furness. Traditionally a farming community, the Parishes proximity to the A590 road has seen a growth in the number of commuters who live here. It is also a centre for car showrooms.

The local tourist boom has largely missed Lindale and Low and High Newton, with nearby Grange-over-Sands developing into a seaside resort and villages to the north and west, such as Windermere, benefiting from their position in the Lake District National Park. Lindale village has a thriving primary school, two pubs, village shop and a post office. Newton no longer has a school or shop but enjoys a pub in the centre of High Newton.
