the Village Website
Torver Walks, Gail Hardman's famous guide to 15 country walks from Torver, recently
is now available at the Wilson Arms and the Church House Inn. Just ask at the bars.
If you're visiting on a walking holiday you really will be lost without it.

The Ancient Village of Torver lies in a beautiful wooded valley close to Coniston Water at the southern end of the Lake District National Park.
‘Thorvergh’ owes its origins to the Viking Norse incursions of the eighth century when they got tired of all that rapin’ and pillagin’ and decided to settle down. Of course, it was all mud huts back then (‘torf’ and ‘erg’: turf roofed hut) and most of them have gone now, but the Church House Inn dates from 1378.

All in the navigation bar at the top of the page or
down the side bar. Or ask Torver's Village Idiot.
He'll be sat on a wall somewhere in the village.
