A Bit of History about Crook

Buildings are a blend of the old and new, predominantly grey stone and slate, all the farms are very old during the 14th or 15th century, one still retains round chimneys, a typical feature of Lakeland architecture, built to withstand the fierce winds prevalent during the winter. Hills, trees, rocks and water form the landscape around the village of crook. Hills are small, the highest point just 249 metres above sea level. The great war memorial hall is the meeting place for the young farmer’s club, the women’s institute and the crook folk dance society to raise money for the upkeep of the hall.
