A community in Cumbria has raised £100,000 to save a traditional pub in the region, which could benefit those planning to go walking there.

According to the Co-operative Financial Services, almost 90 per cent of residents living in Crosby Ravensworth support the re-opening of the Butchers Arms, which may be a reality thanks to the raised funds.

The current sum is a third of the total needed for The Lyvenet Community Pub Ltd, the co-operative set up by the villagers, to buy the venue, although the group have already had their offer of purchase accepted.

David Graham - one of the directors of this new co-operative, said: "Our plan is quite simple really, to buy and reopen a traditional Cumbrian pub selling local ales, good quality local food and offering a warm welcome to all."

Among the most famous pubs in Cumbria is the Kirkstone Inn, the highest in the Lake District, which has been serving guests for over 500 years.
