Pooley Bridge can be found next to the River Eamont at the northern end of Lake Ullswater as it flows onto Penrith. The name Pooley Bridge derives from a large pool in the River Eamont, just before it flows out of Ullswater which gives the name Pooley. Then in the 16th Century, a bridge was built across the river, hence Pooley Bridge. The pool has now disappeared ,but the bridge can still be seen.

Pooley Bridge used to be a small fishing and farming community. The area still has a supply of Trout, Salmon and a freshwater Herring called the Schelly to be found. Boats can be found moored here and the Ullswater Steamers also depart from here offering trips along the 7 mile lake to Howtown and Glenridding at the southern end of the lake.

Within the village there are two main streets with delightful old stone houses. From the bridge there are some excellent views to be seen with the lake in front of you as it stretches out with wooded fells on its shores which rise up to the higher hills in the Lakes.

From the village, excellent walks can be taken that offer views to match and a short walk up to Dunmallard Hill reveals Iron-Age remains.

TThe church of St. Paul's can be found in the centre of the village and dates from around 1868.
