Outhgill, Cumbria

Outhgill is a hamlet in Mallerstang, Cumbria. It lies about 5 miles south of Kirkby Stephen. It is the main hamlet in the dale of Mallerstang - a civil parish, which retains the Norse pattern of its original settlement: a series of small hamlets and isolated houses, with no village centre. In the 19th Century, as the main hamlet at the centre of the dale, Outhgill had an Inn, a post office, a smithy, the parish church and a Methodist chapel. Of these, only the church survives.
