Wasdale Head Inn


The Wasdale Head Inn (previously known as the Wastwater Hotel) had been built by 1860, with later alterations. Wasdale Head was known as a centre for rock climbing from the later 19th century.[1] Will Ritson (1808 - 1890) was the landlord of the Wastwater Hotel, famous for his grand fables. The World's Biggest Liar competition is held annually in his memory. Ritson's Bar, which is part of the Wasdale Head Inn, is named in his honour. There is also a small brewery on the premises, the 'Great Gable Brewery', which began making beer in 2001, and named after Great Gable - the mountain which overlooks Wasdale Head.
