I continued with my Wainwright Outlying fell quest today with a walk around the Naddle Valley above Haweswater Dam and the Mardale Valley. Haweswater, of course, is a flooded valley which is used as the Manchester water supply and evidence of the aqueduct and construction paraphernalia abound, even though it was built over 80 years ago.
