Lamplugh (/ˈlæmpl/[1]) is a scattered community and civil parish located in west Cumbria on the edge of the English Lake District. Historically part of Cumberland, it is the starting point for a number of walks, and is on the Sea to Sea / C2C / Coast to Coast Cycle Route.

On 2 June 2010, Lamplugh was the scene of the first murder during the killing spree known as the Cumbria shootings, when Derrick Bird shot his twin brother, David, who was a resident of Lamplugh.[2]

The local pub is named the Lamplugh Tip Inn, and the village is on the edge of the Lake District National Park. While the village is less than 25 yards from the national park, houses are cheaper than in nearby Loweswater, as it is not actually inside it.
