Old Corpse Road
Old Corpse Road
Links Mardale with Swindale and thence to Shap. Bodies were buried in Shap as the small church in Mardale was not sanctioned for this purpose. The last deceased person who made the journey was John Holme on the 17th. June 1736. Following that the small church at Mardale was allowed a burial ground. The small church is now itself buried under water.
