Jenny Holt
Moved to Hutton Roof 30 years ago and has always been interested in working dogs. She is a member of the British Institute of Professional Dog Trainers and competes successfully all over the country with originally German Shepherd Dogs and now Border Collies in Working Trials. (

Working Trials test dogs on their ability to use their noses to follow tracks, find articles left by a track layer, test for fitness over jumps and obedience both with and away from the handler.
Jenny teaches dog owners all aspects of dog training from general obedience to specialist working trials through group sessions or on a one to one basis. She believes that a trained dog is a happy dog and should be a pleasure to own.

She can be contacted at South View, Hutton Roof Tel: 015242 71584

Sue Prickett
Sue is our local star maker of preserves, winning North West Producer of the Year 2004 and a silver medal in the UK Great Taste Awards with her blackcurrant jam.
She produces a wide range of chutneys, marmalades, jellies and jams from traditional recipes. Everything is made in small batches in her farmhouse kitchen at Hutton Roof Hall and uses locally sourced produce wherever possible. As a result some preserves are only available seasonally.

Sue’s preserves can also be found at Kitridding Farm Shop, at nearby Old Town or contact Sue direct on 01524 271435. Copyright © 2006 Sue Prickett

Tim Holt
Tim is one of several villagers who own vintage cars including a 1928 Lagonda Tourer, 1933 Daimler and a 1947 Post Office Engineer’s Morris van. These are not museum pieces, but are used for regular long distance trips, most recently a round the coast of Britain tour.
Tim has been the event organiser of the Cumbria Steam Gathering for over 30 years. This 2 day summer event has been going for 36 years and is a must for anyone interested in machines of any type, not just steam driven!  Read Gazette Report 

Marilyn Edwards

Sadly, Marilyn died in 2017 and is greatly missed.
Author of the Cats of Moon Cottage Books, “The Coach House Cats” which follows on from “The Cats on Hutton Roof” .

Marilyn said “Before we moved here I spent hours on the web trying to find out more information about the local area and because my name is Marilyn I found references to a Marilyn on Hutton Roof and became curious.” 
Marilyn is a hill with a relative height of at least 500 feet, regardless of absolute height or other merit. The name is a pun based on Scottish peaks over 3000′ being named Munros after Sir Hugh Munro (although of course Marilyn Monroe was spelt differently) so now Hutton Roof has two!
