Welcome to the Rusland Valley…

The Rusland Valley lies in the southern part of the Lake District National Park between the lakes of Coniston Water and Windermere. It is a quiet area of gentle rolling fells, moorland, woodland, fields and wetlands, with farms, hamlets and small villages. Go to the menu options above to find out about local organisations, village halls, places to visit and the latest news.

Rusland Valley Horticultural Society’s  ‘Potato Day’ was a great success and raised more than £1200 for the RVHS towards the Rusland Show! Many thanks Maureen Boyren, our Secretary, and to everyone who worked so hard to make it happen.

Rusland Show: The Committee had to make the decision in April not to run the Show this year (2021) due to the unknown risks of coronovirus this summer. Many of the Show’s preparations and costs are incurred early in the year. However, we look forward to welcoming people back to the Valley for our Show on 20th August 2022 when hopefully we will be able to run it again.


Rusland Horizons work parties are up and running again – go to their Whats On pages to book. See also their Facebook page and join the new ‘Wild About Rusland‘ group where you can post your wildlife pictures, ask questions and hopefully get answers!
