On the first Saturday of July every year The Patterdale Parish Parish Boundary Walk takes place. This year’s walk will take place on Saturday 4th July 2020. This annual event is a lot of fun for those taking part and raises much needed funds for St Patrick’s Church in Patterdale and the Patterdale Church of England Primary School.  If you’re interested in taking part in the next walk then please contact us or download the invitation using the link to the right. Alternatively if you can’t participate but would like to sponsor one of the teams, please click the “Sponsorship” link

History of the Walk

In days gone by local people walked along the boundary to remember Patterdale’s border. Boys may have been beaten to make fast the memory - hence “beating the bounds”! Other people have walked along the Boundary for sport and interest. In this spirit in 1990 the Rector of Patterdale and two local parishioners walked the boundary in 13 hours. In 1992 they invited people to walk the boundary to raise money in sponsorship and donations for Patterdale School and St Patrick's Church. Since then the walk has taken place every year, now always on the first Saturday in July.

A special word of thanks to Stephen Gorton, who continues to organise the walk with the experience and dedication that has helped make this annual event both an ongoing success and an invaluable source of fundraising for both the Church and the School. A big thank you too to the many volunteers and helpers who man the checkpoints and provide the much needed catering and refreshments, and of course to the walkers themselves, and to all their supporters and their generous sponsorship!
