Whenever I walk past this place, on many of the hike’s Florence and I do in the Langdale area of the Lake District, I can’t resist going in for another look. The Cathedral Cave is part of old slate quarry and has an eerie quality to it.

I have painted this quite small, only about A4, and it makes a great little study, with challenges like getting the craggy, almost sharp appearance of the rocks, and contrasting these with the few softer shapes of the foliage seen through the opening, and clinging to crevices in the slate.
