SD7693 : East Scale, Grisedale

taken 4 years ago, near to Grisedale, Cumbria, Great Britain

East Scale, Grisedale
East Scale, Grisedale
This gaunt, ruined farmhouse stands close to the upper reaches of Grisedale Beck virtually at the highest limits of intake land. It seems to have had some stabilisation work done in the form of cement plastered onto the upper edges of the walls. Perhaps someone will one day re-build it, as has happened at many other once-abandoned dwellings in Grisedale.
In 1975 Grisedale was the subject of a TV documentary, 'The Dale that Died' and a subsequent book. At the time there was only one house still occupied. My walk through the dale suggests that the place has partially been resuscitated as many of the properties have been restored or are undergoing refurbishment. It would seem that the occupants are mainly 'offcomers' LinkExternal link
