Pardshaw Meeting

Meetings for Worship are held at Pardshaw at 7:00 pm on the 3rd Sunday of the month. You will be most welcome to join Friends from Cockermouth and other Quaker Meetings in the area who come once a month to Pardshaw.


Other occasional meetings are held at Pardshaw, whose meeting house dates back to 1729 and commands an impressive view of the Western fells. The hamlet of Pardshaw Hall lies approximately 1km north of Pardshaw village on a minor road approached from the north along the A5086 from Cockermouth to Egremont. 


The Pardshaw Quaker Centre CIO is a registered charity set up by long-term friends of Pardshaw that has taken a lease from Cumberland AQM to manage the Pardshaw properties.  It is renovating and redeveloping the site in line with its aims which are...


"to develop and progress the vision of Pardshaw Quaker Centre as a resource for Quakers, other groups and the local community, a place for worship, relaxation, learning, fun, creative activities, or short breaks in simple, affordable accommodation, in a historical and peaceful setting."


It has its own website. Just google: Pardshaw Quaker Centre.
