The Shepherds Arms Hotel, Ennerdale Bridge
Ennerdale Bridge lies at the confluence of Croasdale Beck and the River Ehen and is on the border of the Lake District National Park that uses both watercourses as its boundary. The nearest town is Cleator Moor to its west. Ennerdale Bridge appears in many versions of the Coast to Coast Walk and is 13 miles from its western end.
The parish church, dedicated to St Mary, is Victorian - dating from 1858 - in the Romanesque style.
The name Ennerdale means 'Anund's valley', from 'Anundar', genitive of the Old Norse personal name 'Anundr'/'Qnundr', and 'dalr' 'valley', cross-influenced by 'Ehen', the name of the local river.
