TROUTBECK, a village and a township-chapelry in Windermere parish, Westmoreland. The village stands 2½ miles N by W of Windermere r. station; is not a village in the ordinary sense of the word, but a series of hamlets bearing different names, and aggregately about 1½ mile long; and has a post-office, of the name of Trout-beck-Bridge, under Windermere. ...


The chapelry comprises 4,700 acres of land, and 622 of water. Real property, £2,718. Pop., 428. Houses, 81. The surface is a picturesque vale, overhung by mountains, beautified with culture, and descending with magnificent outlook to the shore of Windermere lake. The living is a p. curacy in the diocese of Carlisle. Value. £62. Patron, the Rector of Windermere. The church was built in 1562, and repaired in 1828.
