Haweswater and Martindale

Haweswater View

Tucked away to the east, Haweswater is a very solitary place.

The rough fellsides and crags are home to the only golden eagle in England. A herd of majestic red deer also live in the valley, roaming the steep sides of Riggindale.

Martindale Church

Martindale is another of those far flung places that not many people know about.

The handsome little chapel is at the head of the valley.


Steel Knotts and Loadpot

The Ullswater steamer sails to Howtown, one of the best ways to reach Martindale.

There are some lovely walks here from diminutive Hallin Fell to craggy Steel Knotts.

Cockpit, Ancient Stone Circle

At the far end of Ullswater you can trace the old Roman road between Penrith and Ambleside.

On Askham Fell you can see the Cockpit, an ancient stone circle.

Angle Tarn, Cumbria

Angle Tarn is quite a hike from Patterdale or Martindale but the picturesque setting makes it all worthwhile.
