LITTLE LANGDALE - 19/07/15
Little Langdale is one of the quiet wonders of the Lake District, away from the main tourist areas, it offers some of the best scenery to be found in the National Park, it is located to the West of Ambleside and Skelwith Bridge.
|These photos are from a walk starting in Little Langdale Village towards Little Langdale Tarn and the historic Slater Bridge. En-route the Cathedral Cavern is a worthy diversion and worth seeking out. Signs at the entrance warn of the dangers of the site owned by the National Trust, it is definitely one where you need to watch the kids closely when visiting but the 40ft high chamber is a spectacular sight.|
|Walking alongside the River Brathay towards Little Langdale Tarn you can see the remains of former slate quarries in the area, with nature gradually taking back the landscape from the industrial past.|
|Close to Little Langdale Tarn is the ancient Slater Bridge, a pedestrian bridge over the River Brathay, connecting Little Langdale with the slate quarries in the area. This is a fairly level easy walk in the Lake District, but short climbs up the surrounding hills are rewarded with great views of the area if you want more of a challenge.|
