INTERESTING FACT: Elterwater village lies in the jaws of the Great Langdale valley. From the 1750's, the local green slate was in high demand. To service the quarries, a great deal of gunpowder was needed. For this reason, many juniper trees were planted in the area. Juniper wood makes excellent charcoal, a major base-ingredient of gunpowder.
