Lacy’s Caves are carved out of the sandstone cliffs directly above the River Eden at Glassonby, to the north of Little Salkeld.

Having carved them out of the sandstone, Lacy’s Caves were used by Colonel Lacy as a romantic folly for entertaining his guests. It is also said that that Lacy employed a man to live in the caves as a hermit to give them a more authentic appearance.
