At Langwathby Hall was the visitor attraction and working ostrich farm called Eden Ostrich World, which closed in 2012.
The parish includes the nearby village of Edenhall which was a separate parish until 1934.
Langwathby is also the base of the 'Pride of Cumbria', one of the helicopters run by the Great North Air Ambulance Service
'Langwathby' can be translated as 'long' ('lang'), 'ford' ('wath', Old Norse 'vað'), 'village' (Old English 'bȳ', Old Norse 'býr'), referring to the fording of the River Eden which runs along the edge of the village.
At Barbary Plains just outside Edenhall there was formerly a cement block works formerly owned by Hanson plc and later by RMC Group, part of Cemex. The site is now a depot and head office for a haulage company.
