Glenridding & Hartsop Bus Shelters
The Glenridding Bus Shelter was constructed to provide some respite for passengers during inclement weather; it rains a little in the Lake District! It is on the route of the 508 bus service used by school children, residents and visitors alike. For details of the bus service see Links (section 1) Ullswater Tourist Information web site. The Hartsop Bus Shelter was taken under the control of the Parish Council in 2020.
Glenridding Public Hall
The legal procedure to enable the Glenridding Public Hall to achieve incorporated status is now complete. It was registered with the Charity Commission on 22nd February 2016. Other formalities were addressed at the Patterdale Parish Council meeting of 22nd March 2016. During the period leading up to incorporation 12 local residents were asked if they would like to be trustees and the details can be found on the Charity Commission web site (please see the Links Page Section 8). The public hall is therefore no longer an asset of the parish council and will be run as a separate entity with its own trustees.
Green Jubillee Seats Around the Parish
There are 25 Benches or Seats within the Parish that are the responsibility of the Parish Council. The majority of the Benches are metal. 8 of the metal benches are Victorian, 7 of which display a plaque stating: 18VR97. The Benches are located around the Parish from Seldom Seen to Hartsop.
Jenkins Field and Jenkins Field Toilets
The Parish Council took back control of Jenkins Field and the Steamer Road toilets in December 2019. The land was originally gifted to the Parish in the 1930s by Matson Ground Estates.

Recreation Ground and Land At the Back of the Headlands
This area is defined in the land registry document CU190088 and contains the recreation ground and the access from Greenside road as well as the land at the back of the properties known as the Headlands. The council are trustees for the Charity No. 1071637 entitled Patterdale Recreation Ground. The recreation ground is a popular area used by youngsters in the dale and visitors alike. It has a grassed football field and activity playground.
The war memorial has undergone extensive maintenance works which was enabled as a result of generous donations and voluntary work. Patterdale School have been involved in a project on the First World War Commemorations and this culminated in an exhibition of their work at Rheged Penrith. See News year 2014 for an article dated 1st November 2014 for more information.
