669 Elterwater and Little Langdale

"Where are you from?" we asked the group in Little Langdale. "Manchester!", they chorused, "Burnage Media Arts College" They were off to visit a cave, but we stayed above ground exploring rivers, woodland and villages to finish by Elterwater with its classic view of the Langdale Pikes.
