... within a bed of steep rocky mountains of pure, unmixed, impenetrable sterility, is the long, narrow, stern, and desolate lake of Wast Water, ...
Page 72:-
...
WAST WATER
Is three miles and a half long, and three quarters of a mile broad, the depth is from forty to fifty fathoms, and it is probably owing to this, in proportion to the extent of its surface, that it has never been known to freeze. Trout in great quantities, and a few char, frequent its waters. The chief feeders are Over Beck on the south of Yewbarrow, and Nether Beck on the north of Middle fell, issuing from tarns near the Haycocks, and running through Bowderdale. The waters are discharged by the Irt at Ravenglass.
Being a border lake, its end lying in the low country, whilst its head is nestled in mountains, it appears from the foot to the greatest advantage, and is under that aspect most distinguished for sublimity. The mountains are naked to their base, their sides and summits are uniform, shooting up into lofty points, and ending in pyramidical forms. Looking upwards, Yewbarrow forms a fine apex; Kirkfell pushes forward its front to the left; and at the head of the dale, the Gable appears conspicuous. On the right, Lingmell comes finely forward, over which the Pikes of Scafell reign supreme. Up the side vale of Bowderdale, is the Haycock; and the
Page 73:-
Pillar crowns the head of Mosedale. Middle Fell runs along the margin of the lake; and on the opposite side are the Screes, which seem going to decay, their foundation in the water, and their surface and soil being gone, while immense debris and torrents of rocks and stones cover their sides. This range of fell prevents a circumambulation of the lake. Proceeding onwards, a retrospective view of Yewbarrow, the Gable, and the Pikes, seen over Over Beck Bridge, is a fine picture. From Nether Beck Bridge the road passes over a rising ground, and from a field in front of Crookhead, where a beautiful cottage has been built by Stansfield Rawson, Esq. of Halifax, is one of the finest views of Wastdale Head and Water.

...
WAST WATER.- The principal approach to this lake is that by which we have introduced the tourist to it, viz. by the foot. This lake is well worth the notice of the traveller who is not afraid of fatigue: no part of the country is more distinguished by sublimity.

WAST WATER
Is a lake full three miles in length and more than half a mile in breadth. Its depth, being lately sounded by some neighbouring gentlemen, was found to be 45 fathoms, and probably some parts may be still deeper; so that its bottom must be at least 15 fathoms below the level of the sea: and it is probably owing to its great depth in proportion to the extent of surface, that it has never been known to freeze; the duration of winter not being sufficient to cool the whole mass of water to that temperature which permits ice to be formed upon its surface.
The mountains environing Wast Water are lofty and majestic. A shivery mountain side called the Screes bounds the lake on the south-east, extending quite into the water; so that it cannot be passed on that side, even by a pedestrian, without considerable difficulty, and some danger. Looking up the lake, Yewbarrow forms a fine apex; Kirkfell pushes forwards its bold front on the left; at the head of the dale the pyramidical Gable appears conspicuous; Lingmell comes finely in view on the right, over which Scawfell and the Pikes reign pre-eminent; the Hay Cock may be seen through the lateral vale of Bowderdale, and the Pillar crowns the head of the branch called Mosedale: Middlefell, running along the margin of the lake on the spectator's side, and the Screes on the opposite, complete

the panorama. In short, Wast Water affords many peculiarities well worth visiting once, but scarcely sufficient to yield that increased degree of pleasure in a second or third inspection, which would be experienced on Derwent, Ullswater, or Windermere.
The fish of Wast Water are chiefly trout, with which it is well stored: it also contains a few char. Boats are kept by neighbouring gentlemen for the diversion of angling; and the appearance of the Screes from the lake is magnificent. ...

... By exertion too long continued, the mind as well as the body becomes enervated and incapable of enjoyment; as it has been known in some, who travelling through Borrowdale in a morning, would not overlook the most trifling object; yet, in the latter part of the same day, have passed the most interesting scenes of Wast Water without making any other inquiry than 'how far is it to the inn?'

After passing the inhabited part of the valley, the road approaches the lake, which shews the purity of its water, by the clean blue gravel washed upon its shores. As the road proceeds along the margin of the lake, the screes on the opposite side form a striking object, and the mountains left behind should not be forgotten; ...
It has been suggested that Wast Water would be more advantageously seen, by reversing the excursion, so that the principal mountain views would be always in prospect on advancing up the vale. As far as relates to Wast Water alone, this is certainly true; but in what concerns Borrowdale, Lowes Water, and Crummock, they are seen to more advantage by this route: besides, tourists generally congratulate themselves, on having passed over the most difficult part of the road on the first day.
Towards the lower parts of the lake, the shores are more rocky; and the composition of the rock is changed, from a kind of greenstone, to a reddish sienite. ...
