The day started brightly but the forecast wasn't good so we decided on a gentle day around the Coniston area. We visited Hodge Close (1st extra), a place I always like to go, then around to Brantwood House including lunch at their new cafe (which equalled the quality of Chesters). the 2nd and 3rd extra are views across Coniston Lake. The main blip just caught my eye on the wall of Brantwood.
The story of Ruskin and his life at Brantwood is as capturing as his art on display in the House.
