Griesdale or Grisedale, a glen on the mutual border of Cumberland and Westmorland, descending from a tabular depression between Helvellyn and Fairfield north-eastward to the head of UUeswater. A brook called Grisedale Beck traverses it, and is 4½ miles long, and a mountain lakelet called Grisedale Tarn lies at its head in a grand hollow under the NE flank of Seat Sandal. The glen is very fine, and commands some splendid views.
