Welcome to Blawith & Subberthwaite Parish Council

Blawith and Subberthwaite (with Water Yeat and Gawthwaite) is a High Furness parish with just 167 registered electors (ref. SLDC electoral register 2015/16)

Blawith and Water Yeat are on the A5084 near to Coniston Water; Gawthwaite is farther to the west on the A5092; and, the rest of the parish lies between these two roads.

With no shops, pubs or post office, the village hall at Water Yeat is a focal point for many in the community.  It is an indication of the scatter of dwellings in the area that this building is correctly the Blawith and Nibthwaite village hall.  Not located in either, it belongs to two villages in different parishes, for Nibthwaite is in Colton Parish on the other side of the Crake valley. 


The first meeting was held at Water Yeat village hall on Monday 30th October. Following this lively and interesting gathering more people have added their thoughts and opinions thus helping towards the construction of quite a considerable list of ideas. Approximately 20% of the local community have responded, this is excellent and thank you.

The next meeting will be held at Water Yeat village hall on Monday January 15th 2018 at 7pm.
The work already done will provide a good baseline for progress. Please come along if you are interested in helping to formulate the actual plan.

Light refreshments, as before, available.
