Coniston Launch and Brantwood

Brantwood is the large country house you can see overlooking Coniston Water. It was built in the late 18th century and has been the home of a number of prominent people, including John Ruskin. Today the house is a museum dedicated to Ruskin. In the foreground of the above photograph we can see the Coniston Launch, a ferry service taking people across the lake, in this case from Brantwood back towards the town of Coniston.
