Langdale & Grasmere

It was Norse settlers, arriving in the 9th and 10th centuries in search of suitable grazing land for their livestock, with their longhouses which were the forerunners of today's farmhouses. They left their legacy in the names of topographical features such as pike, dale, fell, beck, gill and how.
