Gushing down a precipitous ravine from the southern face of Harrison Stickle in Great Langdale is the dramatic and aptly named Dungeon Ghyll, a sixty foot waterfall.
Below Dungeon Ghyll
Immortalized by Wordsworth who penned his poem 'The Idle Shepherd Boy' in reference to it, the waterfall can be reached via a highly scenic path which leads off from that leading to Stickle Tarn.
Parking for the walk up to Dungeon Ghyll is availiable at the foot of Harrison Stickle. The nearby Old Dungeon Ghyll Hotel is a popular gathering spot for walkers and climbers, many famous climbers have stayed there. The hotel offers food, drinks and accomodation.
