Despite its relatively small size, Cartmel holds or enjoys a number of events for residents and visitors alike ranging from the small and routine to the more infrequent and spectacular.
Also, a number of individuals and groups are active in keeping Cartmel a vibrant and thriving village and we thought it fitting to film some of their work.
