View of Borrowdale in Cumbria, Northern England by I. Smith. Famed for its beautiful and rugged landscape this valley was popular with artists such as Smith, Walmsley and Green. The name Borrowdale is thought to derive from ‘Borcherdale’ which means Valley of the fort in Norse. This is probably a reference to an Iron Age fort that was once situated on a large rock now known as Castlecrag.
