The beautiful Great Langdale Valley attracts many holidaymakers every year. Climbers, fell-runners, hikers and mountain bikers come here to enjoy the fresh air and gorgeous countryside. The National Trust provides visitors with a campsite, offering families a cheaper alternative to self-catering cottages, guesthouses and hotels.
The valley of Great Langdale is located in Cumbria’s Lake District in the North of England. Great Langdale is also the location for the first ever National Trust-owned and run pub, the Sticklebarn. The famous Langdale Pikes, a collection of peaks on the northern edge of the dale, are a particular favourite with climbers and experienced hikers not afraid of a challenge. They contain England’s highest mountain, the Scafell Pike, which climbers can access thanks to a route from the Great Langdale Valley. The spectacular Dungeon Ghyll Force Waterfall is one of many local attractions.
There are only a handful of hamlets and village located in the valley, among them Elterwater and Chapel Stile. Langdale and Elterwater were once heavily involved in the local slate industry. At Elterwater there are still two slate quarries in operation today. The area is littered with disused and abandoned slate quarries, all of which must be clearly marked and made secure to keep the general public safe. Owners of such sites must guard themselves against accidents, for a hiker or climber falling into a disused quarry in such an isolated part of the world could well become a fatality in the unpredictable climate of Cumbria, if left without help and shelter over night.
If you fell into one of those quarries and the accident wasn’t your fault, you can make an injury claim Great Langdale and expect compensation.
