This route links together Little and Great Langdale- it could equally be entitled 'The 5 - Pubs Walk'. Also visited is Cathedral Quarry, Slater's Bridge, The Ting Mound and Blea Tarn. The Ting Mound was used as an open-air meeting place for local government which was established by Viking settlers from the tenth century. Adjacent is Castle Howe upon which have been found the remains of an Iron Age hill fort. Little Langdale was also the home of the notorious 19th century smuggler Lanty Slee who had many stills in the quarries and caves for distilling 'moonshine whisky'. The Old Dungeon Ghyll Hotel is usually known as the ODG where the Hikers Bar has had a long association with the rock climbers who come to climb Raven Crags or Gimmer Crag.Show more
