Welcome to The Old Courthouse, Shap.
This well loved building at the heart of the community is beginning a new era in its long and varied history.
As a community building it offers a warm welcome to everyone.
Please visit us to see what we have on offer!
We are home to a Cumbria County Council Library Link, Shap Pre-School Playgroup and provide a Visitor Information Point for Eden District Tourism. We are working hard to bring other services to the community. We have a variety of rooms available for hire.
We host art exhibitions in The Exhibit 'A' Gallery and have space available for other displays and events. The building has WiFi access, computers and also printing/photocopying facilities. A growing number of groups meet here regularly – check out the information on this website, we hope you will find it interesting and helpful.
The building is owned and managed by a community charity: Shap Community CIO (Charitable Incorporated Organisation) Charity No. 1160966
We shall be discussing the first two chapters of Mike Berners-Lee’s book “There Is No Planet B” a subject we can all identify with as we all have to eat. To help focus our minds and make it personal to ourselves it has been proposed that we each bring an item of food with us, preferable something that we eat on a regular basis and enjoy, not necessarily to eat but to talk about its carbon footprint/food miles etc.
There will be tea, coffee and biscuits available and possibly members of the Brampton Environmental Reading Group, who have been reading the same book but don’t have their first meeting until the end of September.
