visit wasdale & gosforth
about wasdale & gosforth:
A winding lakeshore road leads to remote Wasdale Head, resting in a natural amphitheatre contained by Cumbria's highest mountains. Though the tiny village contains little more than a pub and a few farms, it claims to be next to England's deepest lake (Wastwater), its highest peak (Scafell Pike) and served by the second smallest church in the country.
And there's more - not only can Wasdale boast the biggest liar in the world (Will Ritson), but also a great range of local produce - from real ales to real cheese, with a fine range of local meats including Herdwick lamb, rare-breed pork and succulent goat.
