A Confession

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 parts of the Church House (Kirk'usInn date from 1378.

 Check out the Directory pages and explore Torver's past through the Village History pages.  If you want to know more, Torver's Village Idiot can be found most days sitting on a wall somewhere in the village.  If you give him a penny he'll happily point the way to the nearest pub bar.        Cheers!
