Langdale cottages

The unmistakeable outlines of Crinkle Crags, Bow Fell and the Langdale Pikes form the skyline at the head of Great Langdale, with Pike of Blisco and Lingmoor separating the valley from Little Langdale and the bulky outline of Wetherlam beyond. The Great Langdale valley stretches from Elterwater, one of the most picturesque villages in the Lake District, and neighbouring Chapel Stile, to the National Trust owned Dungeon Ghyll Hotel, with much of the land also in the care of the National Trust, who have ten farms here. Both villages were important centres for the extraction of the distinctive green slate found in the area. Today, only Elterwater Quarry is still in production, but the scars of previous slate extraction are still visible. Little Langdale is a hamlet of a few scattered houses and a pub in the valley of the same name. The Three Shires Inn gets its name from the location, two miles away where the boundaries of the old counties of Cumberland, Westmorland, and Lancashire met. At the head of the valley is Blea Tarn, a wild place that is also easily accessible.
