about shap & the lowther valley
Farming has been at the heart of life in the Lowther Valley for hundreds of years - the fertile pastures being grazed by sheep and cattle for generations.
Shap was on an important droving road from Scotland into England. Bonnie Prince Charlie came this way as his bedraggled army retreated during the Jacobite Rebellion.
