Set in an area of great antiquity, with many historic settlements nearby, Crosby Ravensworth village is 2 miles east of Shap and 5 miles south west of Appleby. The local church of St Lawrence, in its peaceful setting by Dalebanks Beck, has been called a cathedral in miniature and there is even a 7th century cross in the churchyard.

Millbank is a detached stone cottage at the south end of the village, 200 yards from the award-winning community owned local village pub, which was recently bought by the community and serves locally sourced food.

The fell still has limestone pavement and the site of a Roman bridge.
