Cumbria, England

Family Friendly

Mardale Valley is a glacial valley in the Lake District, Cumbria, England. Within the valley, the reservoir of Haweswater is found, one of the largest lakes with a maximum depth of 60 m (200 feet). This valley had a village at its head, named Mardale Green, but it was submerged in 1935, when the water level of the reservoir raised, to supply Manchester with water and other towns in Lancashire. Most of the village's buildings were blown up, the exception was the small church. From Mardale Head the surrounding peaks can be climbed, such as Harter Fell, High Street and Kidsty Pike.
