We started our walk at Elterwater walking part of the edge of the lake then past a waterfall heading towards slaters bridge. Cathedral quarry is a little off the beaten track and you need to know it’s there or you could miss it. You walk...More
Visited here on our stay over in lakeland and WOW what an amazing place!!!,a must see ,the acoustics are amazing in the cave couldn't help belting out a note.

Park as close to Three Shires Inn as possible, road side parking all that is available in Little Langdale Pop in for a drink walk directions are posted in entrance. Basic walk W from pub, take first right. Continue past last cottage on Rt and enter field. Follow path till you see Slaters Bridge. Cross, join road and turn left. Take first obvious rt hand gate leading up into spoil heaps. Abracadabra Cathedral cave ! Alternatively Google Hodge Close Walk NT and change start to Three Shires Inn. Don't forget a TORCH !
