Over the coming months, here at the Thimble Guild, we want to take you with us as we explore the beautiful scenery of the Lake District that is right upon the doorstep of The Thimble Guild. What better place to start than at the iconic bridge of Ashness. Ashness Bridge is perhaps the most photographed packhorse
bridge in the Lake District due to its location and stunning views. This extremely popular viewpoint looks out over Derwent Water, with spectacular views over Bassenthwaite Lake and the River Derwent. The path that runs from Ashness Bridge back toward Keswick, passes under Falcon Crag and is probably one of the best places in the area if you want to spot migrant birds in early spring and summer.
