As 2018 begins, the Lake District’s only coastal village, is celebrating its place on the map as one of the only places in the world to have a double World Heritage Site status.
Muncaster Parish sits at the start of the Frontiers of the Roman Empire and is also part of the English Lake District. Two more good reasons to visit.
Following a bumper season for the village last year, the New Year is set to bring even more opportunities to make the most of the remote jewel in the Lakes’ crown.
Already part of Hadrian Wall’s World Heritage inscription, July’s announcement that the Lake District had joined the elite line-up of international locations gave it exceptional dual status.
Lake District Park ranger, Rec Cathey, said that a lot of work had been done to help visitors enjoy the stunning landscape and history.
