Photographer's Note

The beautifl Kirkstone Pass is both bleak and stunning. It is the highest road in the Lake Disrict at 454 metres. It's name comes from a nearby boulder shaped like a church (kirk). The inn in the shot is from the 17th Century, derelict for a while and restored in the 1870's. Kirkstone Pass has a place in history, being written about by Celia Fiennes 17th century travel writer, poetry by Wordsworth and mentioned by Thomas De Quincy. The road is part of the A592 between Ullswater & Windermere/Ambleside.
