Up until the year of 1928, Black Beck Holiday Park was known as the Blackbeck Gunpowder Mill. If you visit the Park today you can still find several historical buildings and structures that were once used to make and manufacture Gunpowder in Cumbria (Saltpetre Cottage and Watchman’s Cottage).

The Dickson family opened the Gunpowder Mill at Black Beck in 1860, the Gunpowder Mill employed more than 70 people and provided employment for local families for 68 years. After the gunpowder mills closed, employment was found in woodland industries, swill and besom making, coppicing and farm labouring. Bouth has once again become a picturesque village and provides great links to the ever so popular Lake District.
