Thirlmere Recreation Hall

When Thirlmere was created Manchester Corporation acquired all the
land in the surrounding area and ran the estate with a kindly paternalism.
One such act on their part in 1942 was to bring to Thirlmere the
Recreation Hall, formerly a Mission Church at Haweswater which became
redundant when work ended on the reservoir there.

The Thirlmere Recreation Hall has since been a centre for community
meetings and activities and has recently been refurbished at a cost
of over £60,000 and much voluntary labour from parishioners.

It is used by community groups but is also available for meetings
of outside organisations, and even for overnight stays.
Cost to hire, £10 per hour, and £75 for an overnight stay, including heating and electricity
