The Bield, Little Langdale – Greeting Card



“There is a restfulness here of flowers and water meadows, always with the rough knobs of the volcanic rock close at hand, which gives a sense of man’s gentle predominance, though in a hard land”
[Walking in the Lake District – H. H. Symonds, p38]

Here is a charming picture illustrating one of several small farms nestled rather smugly on the fellside, very near to ‘Slater Bridge’ which was one of Lakeland’s ancient pedestrian bridges – that connected the tiny hamlet of Little Langdale with numerous slate quarries in the Tilberthwaite area, around the time Alfred painted this homely scene.
