“The Westmorland damson is a member of the plum family and is grown mainly in and around the Lyth and Winster valleys, south-west of Kendal. The orchards of the Lyth Valley are unique, surrounding each small farmstead and growing along every hedgerow in the valley. While there are damsons in other parts of the British Isles, the flavour of the smaller Westmorland damson is second to none.” Westmorland Damson Association
