The Village

Morland is an extremely old settlement - at least 1500 years, and possibly much longer. The reason for its existence may be the Powdonnet Spring below the church, which produces a large and constant flow of fresh water. The church is dedicated to St Laurence and may have been there since at least 664. The church tower is the only Saxon tower in the north-west of England and was built in c.1050. The village has changed in size several times over the centuries, but now is home to about 350 people in 190 houses.

There is an excellent children’s playground at the top of the village opposite the school.

A booklet is available which explains four attractive 3-4 mile walks starting in Morland.
