English Lakeland


19. Stock Ghyll Force

Stock Ghyll Force, Ambleside. - About five minutes' walk from the Market Square is a deep, thickly wooded gorge which contains this, one of the prettiest and certainly the most visited of all Lakeland waterfalls.

The Old Mill, Ambleside. - A great charm of Ambleside lies in its old cottages and buildings, typical of rural Westmorland, particularly those on the hill near St. Ann's Church. Two of the best examples are the Old Mill and the Bridge House, close by, on the main road.
