  • Salt Pie Lane, Kirkby Lonsdale

Formerly known as ‘Cattle Market Yard’, the name had by 1911 changed to Salt Pie Lane. Cattle used to be sold in the adjoining Horse Market, and an enterprising lady living in the yard made hot salted mutton pies for sale to the traders. After consumption of the pies it was necessary to adjourn to the nearby ‘Green Dragon’ (now The Snooty Fox) to slake their thirst – the landlord of which just happened to be a relation!
