Little Salkeld Watermill, built in 1745, is a traditional English 18th century water mill. It is Cumbria's only watermill still in full operation. Its organic bread and all-purpose flours are available in specialist shops throughout the UK. It operates regular tours and has an award-winning organic vegetarian cafe.
The village contains a vicarage but no church - it was built for Addingham parish church one mile to the north near Glassonby.
It lies on the C2C Cycle Route.
Little Salkeld railway station on the Settle-Carlisle Railway and branch line to the Long Meg Mine were both closed in the 1970s, although the disused platforms still remain and the station building is well maintained as a private house. The closest station is Langwathby.
In 1918 a train accident in nearby Long Meg Cutting killed seven people.
A second accident occurred at the station in 1933, which resulted in the death of one railwayman and injuries to a further five members of railway staff and thirty passengers.
