A winter afternoon at Blackwell

After looking round the Scottish Colourists exhibition at Abbot Hall, and picking up some shopping in Kendal town centre, we decided to drive over to Blackwell as we’d not been for a while. It had been a beautiful, sunny, winter’s day and, although some cloud had come in, I caught some rather nice shots of the house and Lakeland fells illuminated by the winter light.

  1. Such a stunning house. My wife, Sandy, used to work for the Lakeland Arts Trust and was involved in the Blackwell project right from the beginning, when the Trust decided to buy the house from then owner, Maurice Bland, right through its restoration. I feel very lucky to have seen it at each point through that process.
