In 1650 the town of Ambleside was granted a charter to hold a market. In the reign of James II, another charter was granted for the town to collect tolls. The town's Market Place became the commercial centre for agriculture and the wool trade. The old packhorse trail between Ambleside and Grasmere was the main route between the two towns before the new turnpike road was completed in 1770. Smithy Brow at the end of the trail was where pack ponies were re-shod after their journey. With the coming of the turnpikes, the packhorse trains were superseded by horse-drawn stagecoaches, which regularly travelled between Keswick and Kendal via Ambleside.

The village of Ashwell has a village lock-up that was used to detain drunks and suspected criminals. The village used to be home to a number of local breweries and, accordingly, a variety of public houses in its past, but currently has just three pubs: The Rose and Crown, the Three Tuns and the Bushel and Strike 🍺

Hay-on-Wye. You must add this place to your list if you like bookshops and vintage shopping. It’s magical. 💜

I've been blessed. It's every Instagrammer's dream. A lone, yellow jacket-wearing human entered the shot. Unplanned, I managed to capture them in their natural habitat. Take that @gord.cook and your faked jacket scenes 💁🏼

So tragic a brave police officer was killed today in the line of duty protecting the good people of London and it's visitors. My heart goes out to all the victims & their families of this horrific terror attack. Wishing those with catastrophic injuries love & strength on their journey of recovery. Never let these cruel people destroy our way of life! We must stand together in times of tragedy and show how strong our nation is against such cowardly attacks by supporting each other and celebrating what we have in common, not what sets us apart 💗🙏🇬🇧

Words. There are lots of them. Trying to put them together for a caption is tricky sometimes.
