The grounds of the Inn on the Lake, 28th April 2000

I spent part of the Easter/Mayday holiday of 2000 at Glenridding. A few hours after I arrived it started to rain. It rained continuously for 3 days. It finally let up on the final evening, and the morning I had to leave was glorious. I grabbed these pictures in the hotel's grounds while waiting for the bus out to Penrith.
Inn on the Lake (formerly the Ullswater Hotel)

The Inn on the Lake is set in ample grounds, which include part of the lake's shoreline.


This lovely wooded outcrop, an outlier of Birkhouse Moor, overlooks Glenridding.

Glenridding Dodd

A small but difficult fell, and another superb viewpoint for Glenridding village and the lake.

A last look at this corner of Lakeland before I left for Keswick. The rest of the day was marred by cloud cover.
