Hawes Water lies about four miles from Askham. It is little more than three miles long, and about half a-mile broad. One side is richly wooded; the other nearly bare: and a pair of bold promontories threaten to cut it in two, in one part, where the passage is only two or three hundred yards wide. Round the head of the lake cluster the great mountains of Harter Fell, High Street, Kidsty Pike and others, leaving space among the skirts for the exquisite little valley of Mardale. Those who are able to obtain one of Lord Lonsdale's boats for the traverse of the lake may think themselves fortunate; for this is, of course, the most perfect way of seeing the surroundings of so small a sheet of water: and all other persons are deprived, by prohibition, of the means of doing so. There are some good houses on the shores and at the further end; but the occupants who live on the very brink are not allowed to keep any sort of boat. His lordship's boats are said to be procurable for the asking; but the preliminaries are a hindrance. The walk along the lake side is, how-
Page 173:-
[how]ever, easy and agreeable enough. The road skirts the western bank. The crags which are sprinkled or heaped about the head of the lake are very fine. They jut out from the mountain side, or stand alone on the green slopes, or collect into miniature mountain clusters, which shelter tiny dells, whence the sheep send forth their bleat. ... Mardale ... at one end of the dale is the lake, and the other is closed in by the passes to Kentmere and Sleddale; and the great Pikes tower on either hand. The stream which gushes here and pauses there, as it passes among rough stones or through a green meadow, comes down from Small Water, reinforced by a brook from Blea Water on High Street, which joins the other a little above Mardale. ...

HAWES WATER,
Belonging to the Earl of Lonsdale, is a less Ulles Water, undefiled by bad taste. It is three miles in length, and generally half-a-mile in breadth, abounding in perch, trout, eels, and chubs. The eastern side is screened by pretty wooded rocks, and its western girt by a few cultivated fields, thinly
Page 138:-
studded with farm-houses, that are sheltered by groups of trees. A richly-wooded promontory, that stretches from the west side of the lake, appears to cut it into two: a little beyond is Fordingdale Beck, presenting some beautiful cascades, and the grand assemblage of mountains at the lake-head, in the noblest point of view. Branstree, Harter Fell, with its ridgy projection, Riggendale, High Street, Kidsty Pike, which has two points, and is low in the middle like Saddleback, and Whelter, stand around its head, and send down the trickling streams and silvery cascades to feed this interesting water. The views, indeed, in passing up, are a composition of magnificence and sublimity, as seen from the carriage-road in the most favourable manner; the scenes looking down the lake, form a striking contrast - all is rural beauty and sylvan sweetness.

HAWES WATER
Is nearly three miles in length and half a mile in breadth; it is almost divided into two parts by the projection of a plot of cultivated land from the N.W. side. Its head is encompassed by lofty mountains, but they exhibit less variety of outline than those of Derwent and Ullswater. Its eastern side is bounded by Naddle Forest, the lower part completely wooded, and surmounted by the lofty Wallow Crag; beyond which the hill side is scattered with aged thorns. The western side has more cultivation, and a few farm houses sheltered by trees. The houses - with the exception of Mr. Boustead's at Measand-beck, and Mr. Holmes' at Chapel hill - are mostly walled without mortar; and the deciduous trees associate well with the rest of the scenery. Opposite the head of the lake, Castle Crag is a prominent feature in the landscape.
This lake is well stocked with fish of various kinds; but they are chiefly preserved for the table of Lowther Castle.
Lying beyond the usual circuit of the lakes, and at a distance from the great roads and places of entertainment, Hawes Water is often omitted in the tour. But those who can contrive to visit it without hurry or fatigue, will find it a sweet retired spot.

EXCURSIONS TO HAWES WATER.
There are various mountain passes by which Hawes Water may be approached by pedestrians; and a way on horseback through Long Sleddale, has been described with a high degree of colouring in some former publications. In planning an excursion, several things are to be taken into consideration; as, what kind of conveyance the roads will admit of, how that conveyance is to be supplied, and at what places refreshment may be obtained. ...
...
But it will generally be found most convenient to visit Hawes Water from Penrith, by way of Eamont Bridge; turning to the right at Arthur's Round Table, to Askham 5 miles; thence by Helton, and Butterswick, to Bampton, nearly 5 more. ...
Leaving Bampton Grange, with it church, on the left hand, two miles more bring us in sight of Hawes Water. Some will content themselves with travelling a couple of miles along the banks of the

lake, and thence return to the Grange for refreshment. ...
Those who wish to penetrate the hidden recesses of the mountains may go the whole length of the lake, ... Here the mountains seem to forbid all further progress; but turning the end of the hill the party will soon arrive at Mardale Green; from whence they may either return the same way, or pass over the mountains to Long Sleddale or to Kentmere.

'The approach to the lake is very picturesque; you pass between two high ridges of mountains, the banks finely spread with inclosures; upon the right, two small beautiful hills, one of them covered with wood; they are most pleasantly elegant. The lake is a small one, above three miles long, half a mile over in places, and a quarter in others; almost divided in the middle by a promontory of inclosures, joined only by a strait, so that it consists of two sheets of water. The upper end of it is fine, quite inclosed with bold, steep craggy rocks and mountains; and in the centre of the end, a few little inclosures at their feet, waving upward in a very beautiful manner. The south side of the lake is a noble ridge of mountains, very bold and prominent down to the water's edge. They bulge out in the centre of a fine, bold, pendant, broad head, that is venerably magnificent: and the view of the first sheet of the lake, losing itself in the second, among hills, rocks, woods, &c. is picturesque. The opposite shore consists of inclosures, rising one above another, and crowned with craggy rocks [1].
The narrowest part, by report, is 50 fathoms deep, and a man may throw a stone across it. Thwaite-force or fall, is a fine cataract on the

right, and opposite to it, the first sheet of water is lost among the rocks and wood, in a beautiful manner. Bleakhow-crag, a ruinous rock, and over it, Castle-crag, a staring shattered rock, have a formidable appearance; and above all is seen Kidstow-pike, on whose summit the clouds weep into a crater of rock that is never empty. On the eastern side, a front of prominent rock bulges out into a solemn naked mass, and a waving cataract descends the furrowed side of a soft green hill. The contrast is fine - At Bleakhow-crag there is a pleasing back view.
Above the chapel, all is hopeless waste and desolation. The little vale contracts into a glen, strewed with the precipitated ruins of mouldering mountains, and the destruction of perpetual water-falls.

hearsay Jamie Lowther is said to be buried on Hugh Laithe's Pike, and when the wind gusts blow down from Mardale Head, lashing the quiet lake to fury, it is said to be his ghost struggling to escape his rocky prison.

hearsay The Act of Parliament authorising Manchester Corporation to build the dam passed in 1919. Land purchase was completed by 1925, construction was completed in 1941. The dam was first filled in December 1942.
The dam is a hollow concrete buttress type. A plumb bob hangs somewhere inside to monitor movement of the dam; it was deflected a 1/20th of an inch by the time the dam was full.
