Lonsdale Activity Centres


THROUGH the munificence of the late Tom W Helme, Lonsdale District is supremely fortunate in owning two impressive and singularly distinctive activity centres – one to the east of the City of Lancaster in the delightful Lune Valley – The Helme Memorial Campsite, Littledale (OS Ref: SD 5538 6231), and the other to the north of the District in Silverdale –SilverHelme, (OS Ref: SD 4735 7526)  Both are in areas designated as of outstanding natural beauty.
