We stopped at Ashness Bridge before heading back to Keswick via the Launch at Ashness Jetty. It’s a straightforward walk up from the main road and provides a great viewing area for the lake and surrounding area. The bridge and the waterfalls below it are...More

To look out over the view of Ashness Bridge towards the mountain of Skidaw must be one of the most iconic sights in England. For years Ihave been traveling from the south of England to stop and look. This building was used by scouts for...More
