Elterwater is a village in the English Lake District and the county of Cumbria. The village lies half a mile (800 m) north-west of the lake of Elter Water, from which it derives its name. Both are situated in the valley of Great Langdale. Elterwater Bridge is a Grade II listed structure dating to at least the 18th century.

August 2019 A few pictures from the walk Elterwater to Ambleside & Cathedral Cavern

A good day out despite the weather warnings. We started off at Elterwater in heavy rain & headed to the Britannia for coffee. The hanging baskets were lovely with three roses outside the door (Kate, Nina Jenny).

We were not sure if the river crossing would be possible.

But it was & Nina was obviously enjoying it!

We made our way to Cathedral Cavern. This was the entrance tunnel.

It is spectacular as these photos show. I spent some time exploring and went along the long tunnel where a torch was a necessity.

No matter how hard she tried Kate couldn’t get the pound coin out of the money tree.

A woodpile.

Colwith Force was spectacular.

A beer in the Talbot at Skelwith Bridge was good before finishing with a walk over the hills to Ambleside.  This beer is brewed in Wasdale and is named after the chief chef’s dog “Bogi”.
