Top of the Pikes

This breathtakingly beautiful valley runs west of Ambleside up to the Langdale Pikes. Pike is a local term for peak. It includes the lovely village of Elterwater with its pub and a scattering of craft shops.Human activity in Langdale can be traced to Neolithic times and the production of stone axes, while whole panels of rock art are still visible on a pair of boulders at Copt Howe, near Chapel Stile. The earliest permanent human settlement was probably in the Bronze Age and when the Romans arrived in the region, they built a road through Little Langdale from the Galava Ambleside Fort to the one on Hardknott Pass.
