Head of the Troutbeck Valley on a March Morning

The head of the Troutbeck valley taken from the Kirkstone road through the light haze of a March morning. This was the route of the Roman Road from the fort at Ambleside to Brougham by the River Eamont near Penrith. Passing the Tongue of Troutbeck Park and with Ill Bell and Froswick to the right it climbed up in the distance to High Street. Many a legionnaire passed this way, and now many a Lake District walking enthusiast.
