Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

Our weekend visit to the Lake District began with a stop off at Wray Castle which is a mock castle, built in 1840, as a residence for Dr James Dawson, using his wife's inheritance. Seemingly, she took one look at the castle when it was completed and refused to live in it!

It is situated at the top of Lake Windermere, on the western edge, only a few miles from Ambleside. It has been owned by the National Trust since 1929 and though there were no contents when they inherited the building, the rooms are still worth exploring.

The National Trust put on lots of activities for children during the holidays and, when we were there, the car park was full and lots of youngsters were taking advantage of the opportunities.

The day was overcast so, I decide to show the castle in b&w, as the scene was already very monochrome.

There is an excellent link here which lots of further information about the history of the castle and some excellent interior shots.

Have a great day, Bev:-)
