"Langdale is known to archaeologists as the source of a particular type of Neolithic polished stone axe head, created on the slopes of the Pike of Stickle and traded all over prehistoric Britain and Europe" (Wikipedia).

I like to think about the people who lived thousands of years ago in this place.

The national park was created in 1951 to protect land and wildlife. Unlike public parks in the States, almost all of the park remains in private hands - good, caring hands, it appears.
