Arkholme is a small village which forms part of the Lune Valley with wonderful views out towards Ingleborough. The village of Arkholme was one of the first places connected to the Broadband 4 Rural North high speed broadband network. This area offers the densest distribution of Norman castles outside of the Welsh border countryside. Open countryside and working farms are very common here. The Village Hall which was designed by Mason Gillibrand Architects of Caton was completed in 2004 and won an RICS Community Benefit Award in 2005.
