|Wasdale walks and photos|
is one of the English Lake District's finest dales with one of its
pubs "The Wasdale Head Inn" the home of
rock climbing. Lingmell & Scafell Pike,
an easy walk to Englands highest summit, Lord's
a scramble to the summit of Scafell with
rock scenery, Great Gable & Kirk Fell and
the Mosedale Horseshoe, including Yewbarrow,
fine circular ridge walk over Pillar, Red Pike and Scoat Fell.
The tiny churchyard is the last resting place of a number of climbers who perished in the mountains of the world. Once, Wasdale did not have a church and an old Corpse Road leads across to Eskdale's church, passing the Burnmore Inn (Woolpack also nearbye), an easy walk for a bad day. Illgill Head to the south of Wastwater forms an impressive cliff of scree for the length of the lake. Esk Pike is not in Wasdale but is a possibility.

"I lay in a state of almost prophetic trance and delight -
and blessed God aloud, for the powers of reason and the will,
which remaining no danger can overpower us"
