The non-native grey squirrel was introduced to England in the late 1870s from America and is the primary cause of decline of the red squirrel. It does so by out-competing red squirrels for food in deciduous and mixed woodlands and transmitting a virus, the squirrel poxvirus, that is lethal to red squirrels. If you are walking in woods in around Dale Head Hall and Cumbria keep your eyes peeled for both red and grey squirrels.

The town's name reflects the Viking influence in the the area (around 10th Century BC), the meaning widely accepted to mean 'Cheese Town'; probably because of the Norsemen's introduction and breeding of Herdwick sheep in the area- which would have supplied the town with a great supply of cheese; as well as both meat and fleece.
