Our village is a civil parish of the City of Lancaster in Lancashire, England. The parish of Arkholme-with-Cawood had a population of 334 recorded in the 2001 census.




We are one of only two Thankful Villages in Lancashire – those rare places that suffered no fatalities during the Great War of 1914 to 1918. Our small village sent by far the biggest number from one village and parish off to war – 59. It is remarkable that all 59 returned to their homes.
