Pooley Bridge is a village in the Eden District of the northwestern English county of Cumbria, within the traditional borders of Westmorland. It takes its name from the bridge over the River Eamont at the northern end of Ullswater. There is a pier from which ferries (known as the Ullswater Steamers) provide connections to Glenridding and Howtown. Pooley Bridge was formerly known as Pooley or Pool How meaning the hill by the pool or stream.
The name Pool How was derived from the Old English word pollr plus the Old Norse haugr meaning hill or mound. Pooley is mostly situated in the civil parish of Barton, of which it is the main settlement. The few houses on the northern or Cumberland side of the bridge are in Dacre parish.
