Its style was mainly Early English, the western gable Norman.
Wasdale Head, between Gable and the Scafell range, is peculiarly grand, with dark grey screes and black crags frowning above its narrow bottom.
All the mountains offer easy routes to pedestrians, but some of them, as Scafell, Pillar, Gable (Napes Needle), Pavey Ark above Langdale and Dow Crags near Coniston, also afford ascents for experienced climbers.
The roof was thatched, and perhaps had a gable at each end with a hole to allow the smoke of the wood fire to escape.
