Lake District Lowick

There has been a settlement at Lowick since before the publication of The Domesday Book. It is thought that the first settlers were Vikings in the 9th century whose farmsteads were called “Lofwik”, probably meaning ‘leafy creek or river bend’ from the old Scandinavian ‘Lauf +vik’. The river – the Crake – still forms the eastern boundary of the Parish – and empties from the southern end of Coniston Water into Morecambe Bay, with the River Leven emptying Lake Windermere, at Greenodd.

Every May bank holiday one household in the village hosts a 'duck race', whereby plastic ducks are put into the stream in the house's garden and 'raced' against each other. The race is followed by food and drink until late in the evening, even for the ducks. In 2002 a competitor was allegedly disqualified when it was discovered that he had greased his ducks with lard from the Berkshires in order to speed their progress through the weir at Lowick Bridge.

There is an annual event in the village called the Lowick Show, known locally as the Lile Royal, which attracts visitors from nearby towns and villages. There are games, stalls, cattle, ferret and dog shows, as well as competitions for bakery, and arts and crafts.
