Many a hardy walker has passed through the village of Bowston, given that it sits on the Dales Way that takes walkers from Windermere across to Yorkshire. The sizeable Potter Fell overlooks the village and this hill is a popular challenge for walkers and fell-runners alike. Bowston's history is a tale of farming, countryside and paper production. Bowston Mill was an integral part of the paper production that exploded in the area during the industrial revolution, and it was bought out by Croppers of Burneside in 1880. The mill was used right up until the early 1960s, but has now been replaced by housing. Lasting testaments to Bowston's history can be found at the banks of the river Kent, where a Grade II listed, 17th Century bridge provides a place for cars and people to cross. Also, at the junction of Burneside Road and Potter Fell Road, there is a rare Victoria Regina postbox. Holiday cottages in Bowston provide an ideal base from which to explore the area and the standard of accommodation in the village is excellent.
