Wasdale (pronounced /?w?zde?l/ WOZ-dayl) is a valley in the western Lake District National Park in Cumbria, England. The River Irt flows through the valley to its estuary at Ravenglass. A large part of the main valley floor is occupied by a lake called Wastwater, the deepest lake in England (258 feet). The valley walls on the south-eastern side of the lake are very steep, leading to the summits of Whin Rigg and Illgill Head, but generally more open on the opposite side.
The head of the valley is dominated by the mountains of Great Gable and the highest peak in England, Scafell Pike, which along with Scafell, Kirk Fell and Yewbarrow, surround the small community of Wasdale Head. Nearby, is St Olaf’s Church, which is one of the smallest churches in England
