  Derwentwater from Surprise View
by steventilly

Further uphill from Ashness Bridge you come to "Surprise View". This is a viewpoint named in Victorian times because quite simply the view from here is quite a surprise. From a gap in the trees you suddenly get the most wonderful views of the whole of Derwentwater and beyond to Bassenthwaite.
