East > 12. Mardale Area

Area Summary

The Mardale area is based around the valley of the same name in the far north-east of the Lake District.

It was once home to a village called Mardale Green and a natural lake called Haweswater, with a road at its western side. All these were drowned with the building of Haweswater Dam.
