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!
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.
