About Our Name

Our pub is a cleverly restored Grade II building dating from the 15th Century that once operated as a fulling mill – hence our quirky name ‘The Flying Fleece’ which links to the heritage of our unique Lakeland building.

The working weir, millrace, wheel and various pieces of machinery are carefully retained and can still be admired.
