The Wasdale Headbangers are a group of 'young men' who have met every year in January and February to 'celebrate' their Lake District exploits and friendship originating in the 1960s.

The six original Wasdale Head Bangers were Barry, Ken, Mike, Pete, Shaun (aka Phil) and Bill, but many others derived from friends and family have joined the reunion over the years.

The first Wasdale Head Bangers reunion was in 1971, in 2019 we celebrated our 49th reunion and now we have reached the 50th reunion in 2020!

The photographs illustrate our yearly meeting in the Wasdale Head Inn and the landscape setting of Wasdale where many walks have been undertaken, both past and present and a few, we hope, in the future, even beyond 2020?

On the bottom right, the rather twee mezzanine was once the floor of a 'flea-bitten' room we first stayed in back in the early 1970s.

These days most of us stay in B&B and self-catering holiday cottages, but Duncan still camped in 2019 - brave man!
