Here are photos from classic Arthur Ransome country.
These were taken in the breathtaking grounds of Brantwood, in Coniston, the beautiful former home of the legendary John Ruskin, whom Oscar Wilde admired.
A top tourist attraction accessible by boat, this museum is well worth a visit.
There is a superb film about Ruskin and his legacy and a very good cafe.
Ruskin believed in a social security system and condemned the world of the Industrial Revolution which condemned many to ill-health.
Ruskin’s new vision for Britain materialised after his death, a sign indeed of a great man.
