Sporting rights are in hand but there are no fishing rights to the River Greta.

Old Wennington is 11 miles east of Junction 34 of the M6 - the Central Lancaster junction and 6 miles from the popular market town of Kirby Lonsdale.

A most attractive secluded rural setting within a hamlet of dwellings and scattered farms in this attractive limestone landscape, convenient for both Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks as well as the Bowland Fells - an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty - viewing highly recommended.
