The village of Backbarrow sits on the River Leven in the beautiful Leven Valley, five miles northeast of the busy Cumbrian town of Ulverston. Having been badly affected by the floods of November 2009, the village is now back to its best thanks to the hard work of some proud local people, and tourists are being welcomed to this idyllic spot all year round again. The history of Backbarrow is quite a tale and avid historians enjoy visiting the village to learn about its important role during the industrial revolution. In the 19th Century, Backbarrow was a hub of iron and cotton production, as well as being famous for producing the pigment ultramarine or "dolly blue". The remnants of this colourful production line can still be found at the old factory, known as "The Bluemills". Another lasting testament to Backbarrow's industrial past stands in the form of the old ironworks, which were built in 1711. Visitors here can see the old blast furnace stack. Backbarrow's location at the southern end of Lake Windermere, between Lakeside to Haverthwaite Railway and the River Leven, makes it a powerful draw for tourists who can explore the nearby National Trust-owned Fell Foot Park and Beatrix Potter country. Holiday cottages in Backbarrow are available all year round and visitors are made to feel right at home amongst the luxurious surrounds of their own little piece of the countryside.
