Little Langdale Village
OS Grid Ref:- NY 315034
The small community of Little Langdale consists of no more than a scattering of houses, a post office and a village pub. The intriguingly named Three Shires Inn is so named for its location, near to the Wrynose Pass, but two miles away, where the old boundaries of the counties of Cumberland , Lancashire and Westmorland once met. The traditional slate inn was built in 1872.
The Three Shires Inn
The inn, which is popular with walkers, offers food and accomodaation and boasts a beautiful landscaped garden by a Lakeland stream with views over the Tilberthwaite Fells.
Nearby stands the picturesque footbridge known as Slater's Bridge, an arch constructed of slate from the local quarries, built to give the quarry workers shorter access to their homes.
The mountain beauty spot of Blea Tarn stands nearby.
