Post Box #6 Tongue Ghyll, Grasmere (LA22 163)

The ivy surrounded post box at Tongue Ghyll, a place with a scattering of houses and named after the stream that tumbles down the mountainside.  Maybe it is a little small on the photograph but I was taken with the Virginia Creeper turning red on the house in the background and the red of the postbox.

Here you are in the very centre of the English Lake District and the mountains spread like spokes in a wheel from this point.
The postbox lies by the side of the A591 road heading north from Grasmere going over the pass of Dunmail Raise, supposedly named after the last king of Cumbria.  All the bracken on the hill has turned brown, we are well on the way to Autumn.
