Weekend Meet - Wasdale YHA

A excellent weekend in a great location, helped greatly by the continuing spell of good weather. The easy access from the hostel to the lake encourged some members to take canoes.

For those interested - The Celtic tribes, including the Belga and those from Iberia, divided on these islands eons ago into the Goidelics who developed Irish and Pictish Gaelic, and the Brithonics whose language developed into Welsh. At the time of the Roman conquest Welsh was spoken from the middle of Scotland to the coast of Kent. In the words "pen y ghent," the ghent has been corrupted from gwynt which means wind. Pen y ghent originally meant "a windy summit." Pen can mean head, top, or even hill.
