A picture of Ambleside

One of the building's in Ambleside is said to be the most photographed building in the whole of the lake district - Bridge House. This building was originally used as an apple store, and was ingeniously built directly over Stock Beck on a stone arch in order to avoid paying any land tax! It is now however a National Trust Shop after being aquired by them in 1926. Although a small building it is said that it was once home to a family of eight! It is also a place that artists love to paint. The great English landscape artist J.M.W Turner (1775 - 1851) painted it.
