Great Musgrave, Cumbria

Great Musgrave is a village in the Eden district of Cumbria, England. It is about a mile west of Brough. Great Musgrave sits atop a hill near the river Eden and Swindale Beck. Its location provides views over the vale of Eden and the nearby northern Pennines. The village name comes from the Musgrave family who lived here. The stone church of St Theobald, on the edge of the village, dates from 1845-46, but two earlier churches (the first dating back to the 12th century) stood nearby.
