Elterwater


Elterwater and the adjacent settlement of Chapel Stile are two distinct settlements on Langdale Back less than 1km (½ mile) apart. They were industrial communities, extensive slate quarries and the gunpowder works which supplied them with explosives providing employment


The gunpowder works has closed and the site has become a holiday village, but some of the quarries are still worked for the attractive green volcanic slate.  Mechanisation has reduced the demand for labour, and most of the houses once occupied by quarrymen are now holiday cottages. Elterwater and Chapel Stile, beautifully situated at the foot of the Langdale Valley, have thus turned from industry towards tourism and have become a popular holiday centre


Although Elterwater takes its name from the nearby lake, the name of the lake is spelled with two words, Elter Water
