" Peace On Earth"

A couple of weeks ago, we stayed in the old market town of Kirby Lonsdale.

Kirby Lonsdale is in the south Lakeland part of Cumbria.Once it was classed as in Westmoreland...which I reckon was one of the best of place names....BUT now, like so many other names which were part of our's long gone.

While there, we enjoyed "Ruskin's View" ( above) which John Ruskin, art critic/social thinker, described as " one of the loveliest views in England" .

Turner painted it too.... and countless people over countless years, have gazed across the Lune Valley, finding peace and comfort in its calm and fetching beauty...
