The History of Nichol End Marine
As early as the 14th century a shrine was erected to St. Nicholas, patron saint of sailors (& beggars) to enable pilgrims to pray for their safety before crossing the lake to visit the island dwelling of the 7th century Celtic monk St. Herbert.
From the original St. Nicholas landing, the name has changed through Nichols Ending to the present name Nichol End.
Down the centuries, because of its position as a sheltered harbour, barges from Nichol End were used to transport ore, coal, tobacco and plumbago. The 'cargo' now is passengers, ferried to and from Keswick and around the lake.
Nichol End invites you to experience its unique atmosphere.
