THE LAKE DISTRICT SLATE COASTER SELECTION
Among the best-known features of Great Langdale are the Langdale Pikes, a group of peaks on the northern side of the dale. From below, they appear as a sharp rocky ridge, though they are precipitous only on their southern side; to the north, the land sweeps gently to High Raise, the parent peak of the range. The Pikes themselves include (from west to east) Pike of Stickle, Loft Crag, Harrison Stickle and Pavey Ark.
Bridge House was built over Stock Gyhll more than 300 years ago, probably as a summer house and apple store for Ambleside Hall. It was purchased by local people in 1926 and given to the National Trust. Listed Grade 1, the building is now used as an information centre for the National Trust, and is part of the Trust's Windermere & Troutbeck property.
Great Langdale is a valley in the Lake District National Park in North West England the epithet Great distinguishing it from the neighbouring valley of Little Langdale. Langdale is also the name of a valley in the Howgill Fells elsewhere in Cumbria

Windermere Lake ends a mile short of Ambleside at Waterhead, and can come as a shock to boat passengers expecting to be in the town. Crowded around the bay are boats, hotels, cafes, tourist shops, and places selling food for the ducks and swans.
Steamers & Boats sail daily throughout the year between here and Bowness, about halfway down the 12 mile length of the lake, and Lakeside at the far end. From here you can take a ride on the three and a half mile Lakeside & Havernthwaite Steam Railway. There is a horse-drawn carriage taking passengers between Waterhead Pier and the centre of Ambleside
