Langdale camping and a trip to Cathedral Cave

13th &14th August 2013

We try and get up to Baysbrown campsite in Great Langdale at least once in the six week school holidays. 

As usual I took a photo of Harrison Stickle and Pavey Ark from the camp site.

Then as usual next stop was the beck and the rope swing..

Great fun

This was my nephew Harry's first ever time camping and he absolutely loved it. This is him doing his old man impersonation after finding a stick on our evening walk along the bridleway that heads up the valley from the farm.

I think this road sign has been  "borrowed" from elsewhere.

Oak Howe needle

And Oak Howe cottage (available for holiday let I believe) .

After a very warm night there was a light rain shower in the morning and the cloud was swirling around the tops.

Heading towards Little Langdale. Wetherlam in cloud ahead..

Slater Bridge.

After a hour paddling in the beck next to Slater Bridge we made the short trip to Cathedral cave. Harry was not too sure about the tunnel.

The window

And the big pillar of rock

.looking out of the window.

We left the cave and climbed around the side of the quarry and had a look through the small opening down into the cave.

We returned by a slightly different route, We crossed the river at the ford and headed back to Elterwater via Wilson Place.

Still time for one more dip before we came home
