It’s been far too long since I picked up my camera and took any photos. I started a new job about 18 months ago and it’s pretty much consumed my life ever since. So, to restore some balance, I booked myself on to an Open-City London Architecture Tour, which took place today.
Bridge House, Ambleside
Bridge House, which stands over Stock Beck, in Ambleside (in the LakeDistrict) is a very popular tourist spot. It is an iconic building for both Ambleside and the Lake District generally.
Bridge House was built in the 17th Century by the Braithwaites, a very influential family in the area at that time. It allowed them to access their lands on the other side of Stock Beck and also to store apples from their orchards!
London at dusk
We have some friends from Australia staying with us at the moment. Yesterday, we took them on the London Eye, a giant Ferris wheel on the South Bank of the River Thames. We boarded our capsule as the sun was setting. The sky and lighting were quite dramatic.
