Dominated by the high Langdale Pikes, Great Langdale, with its villages of Elterwater and Chapel Stile and its smattering of small farms dotted along its S shaped length, has long been one of the most celebrated mountain valleys in Great Britain. To savour the special atmosphere of this remarkable dale this walk makes an anticlockwise circuit around the valley bottom starting from the car parks beside The Stickle Barn and The New Dungeon Ghyll.
