John Ruskin’s Purgatorial Mount

As one of our side tours we visited the wonderful home of John Rustin who was a poet an artist and a critic. His home called Brantwood is on the shores of Coniston Water and we wandered through his amazing premises and Puratorial Mount gardens and had a cup of tea of course. Then went on the Steam-powered Gondola across the lake Coniston where Donald Campbell did his final speed attempt and was killed in 1967. We alighted at the “Blue Bird Cafe and found a plaque dedicated to Donald Campbell in the nearby little town.
