Mungrisdale is a small village in Cumberland, north-east of the Lake District proper and its fell country but within area in which fellwalkers congregate and far from lacking in its own delights. The name 'Mungrisdale' is also that of the valley in which the village sits.
The name of the dale, and hence the village, is from the Old Norse language: gris dalr means "Pig Valley", and the prefix refers to St Mungo, otherwise called Kentigern: a popular saint for dedications in the Middle Shires, from whom the parish church is named.
The parish, including neighbouring hamlets, had a population of 297 recorded at the 2011 census. The village has no local amenities except for the church and a pub.
The parish church is St Kentigern's Church, built in 1756. It is a Grade II* listed building.
