story There is said to be a boulder in the River Caldew, where the river valley widens in meadows on the outskirts of Sebergham, which has a one foot deep crack in it. A local boy refused by the daughter of Mr Denton, a landowner, said he would saw through the boulder until she consented. Well, its not sawn through, so perhaps she did.

hearsay Doctor Brow, the 1 in 6 road N of the village, is named for a local doctor killed when his pony shied and his trap turned over, coming down the hill.
