About Temple Sowerby Temple Sowerby, situated at the foot of the Fells halfway between Penrith and Appleby, boasts the nickname the “Queen of Westmorland Villages”, although its actual name comes from the Knights Templar who were granted the Manor of Temple Sowerby in 1228. The original manor house was later passed to the Knights Hospitallers, prior to the Templar order being bloodily suppressed in 1312, and was then seized in 1545 by Henry VIII, who granted the manor of Temple Sowerby to Thomas Dalton. The red sandstone manor house, built partly in the 16th Century, then added to in the 18th Century, now belongs to the National Trust and is known as Acorn Bank. The village is set around a traditional village green, and boasts mid-16th Century rubble-and-thatch buildings intermingled with 18th and 19th Century buildings – it is also one of few Westmorland villages retaining a maypole. Today, a truly rural community enjoy the tranquility that the recently built A66 by-pass has bought by diverting some 13,000 vehicles a day which used to dissect the village.
