A Look At Lakeland (The Final Week)

COCKERMOUTH BRIDGE

I featured a short visit to the William Wordsworth house in Cockermouth during this lengthy series and this is the view of the river running along behind the house at the bottom of the garden area. Whilst this side of the river seems to be fenced off, thus not allowing general public access, there is a pleasant walk along the other side of the River Derwent.

Maybe beyond the fence is a private garden?
Brian Walbey: Could well be Chris, still it looks very nice.
I was thinking the same as Chris
Brian Walbey: Yes I think he could be right Bill.

I like seeing the difference between the mowed and the wild lawns.
Brian Walbey: Chris suggests they might be private gardens and I think he could be right.
What a beautiful view! A few daffodils around would be a bonus here Brian...
Brian Walbey: There were still a few daffodils about but sadly not round this particular spot.

It;s good to see that the riverside has recovered after the terrible flooding a few years ago. It;s pleasing, too, that the old bridge survived the tremendous volume of water. A lovely reminder of spring here.
Brian Walbey: Yes there didn't appear to be any sign of the flooding and that old bridge must be pretty solid to have stood against all that floodwater.
Looking calm and peaceful here Brian but this area must have suffered from those bad floods I would have thought.
Brian Walbey: I'm sure it did Janet, there wasn't any signs left behind tough.
What a beautiful location for a historical house, Brian. I'm always tickled by the colourful names the British give to places.
Brian Walbey: It is indeed Beverly. The place is named because it is built on the joining point of the River Derwent and the River Cocker.
You seem to have had good weather, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Most of the week Tom, except for Wednesday, and when we left on Saturday to come home the rain was torrential, not a pleasant drive at all until we got well down the M6.
Nice one > especially with the bridge in sight.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Jacquelyn, fine old bridge isn't it.
love this and thanks for sharing!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much.
