Postbox LA22 196Postbox on the Coniston to Ambleside road which gradually climbs in altitude. It is a popular route not only for the destination but the views. There is a better vista of the hills further on, but not only is this road a busy one it is also very narrow so you would have to be a photographer with steady nerves to stop.
The postbox is in quite an exposed place so is rather grubby but its small lay-by makes it a great place to stop and post your cards, and perhaps journey on to the Brathay river as it flows by Skelwith Bridge, break off to have a pot of tea and rather delicious cakes at the cafe with a river view.
I took the photo in the late afternoon, the autumn light had moved from the postbox to the hills.
