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. 


Meetings are currently suspended due to the Government guidance on Covid 19.

The Parish Council has adopted and is currently operating under the following "High Consequence Infectious Disease Policy" in order to be able to carry out essential Parish Council business.

Parish Council elections due to take place in May are postponed until 2021
