Wastwater in the Wasdale Valley( in the English Lake District National Park) was officially awarded the prestigious title of ‘Britain’s Favourite View’ by the ITV show of the same name, hosted by Sir Trevor McDonald. (Source )
I didn’t vote myself,and living in the Lake District I am spoilt with a plethora of views equally as nice,and I go on holiday to Scotland where the views are superb.I can see why it is much loved,and the skyline does form part of the logo of the National Park Authority.
Shot taken 22nd Jan 2011 from the roadside looking towards the fells at the head of the valley which are (left to right) Middle Fell (slopes) Yewbarrow behind which is Kirk Fell leading to a cloud topped Great Gable, Lingmell leading up to Scafell Pike, the ridge leading up to Scafell , and the slopes of Illgill Head by the lake with a partial view of the Wastwater Screes.
