Mine working in Coledale & Grisedale Pike

Caption - The Lake District has seen more than its fair share of mineral extraction although with a few exceptions the scars have largely healed. Coledale still sees intermittent mining with the mine buildings dwarfed by Grisedale Pike. The clear path leading up to the col (Coledale hause) follows the valley of Coledale from Braithwaite.

Lake District

Walking in the Lake District National Park is amongst the best in the British Isles. The natural beauty has attracted many artists and writers through the centuries and today the same scenery provides the perfect backdrop to a wide variety of walks. The National Park is located wholly within Cumbria with Windermere, Ambleside and Keswick the main tourist towns. For many this is the finest area in England for walking with a wide variety of scenery. Even on the busiest weekends it is possible to get away from the crowds by carefully selecting one of the less-visited fells. More Information
