The Pikes……


The Langdale Valley, Cumbria

The Langdale Valley surround by Cumbrian Fells but dominated by the Langdale Pikes.  With names that remain in the memory long after they have been climbed in younger days…. names like Pike of Stickle, Harrison Stickle, Loft Crag and Gimmer Crag not forgetting Raven Crag. The Dungeon Ghyll often a ragging water fall when the mountain sides seem alive with water.  But also, Dungeon Ghyll  the name of  the hostelry nestling below the Craggs with a welcoming Pint to top-off any mountain day.

The Langdale’s, great in all seasons, but especially beautiful in March with snow touching some of the adjoining summits.

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
