photograph of View of Ashness BridgeDoes Ashness Bridge look familiar to you? It is one of the most photographed views in all of the Lake District and as such, often adorns chocolate boxes, calendars and jigsaws. Having said that, it is still worth a visit, since it is so picturesque. We would advise going late morning or early evening when you will find it easier to avoid the crowds and fellow photographers.

The small stream of Barrow Beck tumbles under the packhorse bridge here on its way down to Derwentwater. The road up here is extremely narrow and steep, with quite a few cattlegrids on the way. Nevertheless, it can be quicker to walk up than drive on a busy day.

Ashness Wood here is inhabited by red squirrels and there is a pleasant walk through the wood from the bridge to Surprise View - where you can be treated to a fantastic view of Derwentwater, Skiddaw and Borrowdale.
