“The long scattered village of Troutbeck begins about a mile and a half above Troutbeck Bridge; and, not to speak of the lovely prospects of lake and mountains commanded from several points, it forms one of the most picturesque gatherings of English homes.”
(A&C Black, p26 Black’s Guide to the English Lakes)
This lovingly rendered snapshot shows a distinctive old Lakeland cottage proudly overgrown with ivy, as a somewhat lonely figure nears the steps, carrying yet more wood at that evocative time of dusk, inevitably accompanied by the traces of woodsmoke from the fires, when the oil lamps have been lit indoors yet there’s still some light in the sky.
