Helmside Road

A ‘New Road’ connecting Burton Road to Oxenholme Road, was built in 1906 but was not named ‘Helmside Road’ until 1968.

Before 1906, to get to Oxenholme Station, the railway workers who lived in the terraced Helmside Cottages built in 1885 had to cross the Kendal to Kirkby Lonsdale road bridge and then use the cinder path running alongside the railway track.

The first properties forming what is now Helmside Road were Helmside Cottages with access only from the Burton Road. These properties numbered 1 to 25 now form the lead for the numbering of the remainder of the road.

Natland Terrace was added in 1896 and these properties are now numbered 67-81 Helmside Road (all odd-numbered properties)

  • Long-time resident John Bateson tells us the surrounding properties were all built between 1968 and 1972 and that this particular piece of land was originally intended for the children’s playground. However, it was deemed to be too close to the road and so has remained undeveloped ever since.
