This tranquil valley owes its name to the desolation caused by the great storm in 1826. Nature has long since repaired the devastation. In 1999 eight thousand trees were planted and interpretation introduced to illustrate the natural succession of plants and trees thought likely to have developed along the valley and on the immediate fells since the end of the last Ice Age.
