Bridge House. by gamelee

Bridge House.

It stands over Stock Beck in the middle of Ambleside, Cumbria. it is a 17th-century survivor.
In the past it has been used as a counting house, a tea-room, a weaving shop, a cobbler's, a chair maker's and, once, a home to a family of eight!
So what is it now?
The characteristic stonework is really brought out well here with your processing. Moody, as the lake district towns usually are.

Amazing piece of architecture from the past and still survives !! Wonderful in b/w , bringing out the detail With the ominous cloud above one ( or me !!) wouldn't be surprised to see a witch on her broomstick flying out of the bedroom window ! !!
If walls could talk - I am sure this place would have varied and flavoursome tales to tell !! Fav

What a nice image in b&w - it really makes you focus on the structure. And I believe we have marvelled at this very building with it's fabulous position. We admired this part of the world a few years ago - and found it fascinating. :)
