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.

To dump poo with impoonity.

Great philosophical thought experiments:
1. If a tree falls in the forest and there is no one around to hear it, does it make a sound?
2. If a man in the forest speaks and there are no women around to hear it, is he still wrong?
