|Troutbeck is a parish
in Kendal Ward. |
It was formerly in Windermere parish, and is on the Eastern shore of Windermere.
"Troutbeck is bounded on the East by Kentmere, on the South by the mother church division, on the West by Ambleside, and on the North by Patterdale in the parish of Barton. It receives its name from the rivulet, which springs in the head of the dale, and running along the east side of this division, empties itself below Calgarth in Windermere water.
Returns do not survive for the 'census' of 1787.
