Kirkby Lonsdale houses [36]
Modern houses in the wonderfully named Salt Pie Lane.
From LinkExternal link "Formerly known as ‘Cattle Market Yard’, the name had by 1911 changed to Salt Pie Lane. Cattle used to be sold in the adjoining Horse Market, and an enterprising lady living in the yard made hot salted mutton pies for sale to the traders. After consumption of the pies it was necessary to adjourn to the nearby ‘Green Dragon’ (now The Snooty Fox) to slake their thirst – the landlord of which just happened to be a relation!"
Kirkby Lonsdale is a small town that developed at a crossing of the River Lune. Granted a market charter in 1227, the town at one time had 29 inns and alehouses of which several survive. The town is rich in historic buildings with over 150 listed.
