Gowbarrow  Cumberland


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Gowbarrow like this:

The grounds around it are traversed by the Aira rivulet; contain Aira force and Lyulph's tower; possess many close scenes of great beauty; and have numerous points commanding magnificent views of the basin and mountain-screens of Ulles-water.
