Close to Ambleside is the lovely valley of Langdale.
This circular walk around the valley begins in Chapel Stile and continues onto Dungeon Ghyll. The walk begins by following the course of the Langdale Beck from Capel Stile to Dungeon Ghyll. It then returns higher up the fellside (Lingmoor Fell), providing nice views down over the valley. This return route is noted in Wainwright's Book 4 as a missing right of way - which has obviously been remedied since then.
