Langwathby Information Kiosk
The once drab and neglected, Langwathby Phone Box has received a new lease of life as a Village Information Kiosk.
The Information Kiosk is now fully operational. The Kiosk displays a map of the village, bus and train timetables, emergency contact details, local tourism leaflets and a host of other information. The Kiosk also doubles up as a lending library. The intention being to provide a focal point for information, for both residents and visitors to the village, whilst also retaining an iconic piece of street furniture.
The Eden Tourism Team was delighted to help support this project through our small Eden Tourism Grant scheme. This was alongside money donated by local Langwathby businesses and the Parish Council.
The Kiosk is located opposite the rear entrance to the Shepherds Inn Car Park.
Main Sponsor - Eden Tourism, Eden District Council.
Langwathby Business Sponsors: - Langwathby Stores, Shepherds Inn, Hopes Garage, Nobles Garage, Chloe’s Hair and Beauty, D W Toppin Ltd and Colin Dawson Ltd.
