View of Lowdore Waterfall in Cumbria, Northern England. The Reverand John D. D. Robinson in his book ‘Views of the Lakes…’, published in 1833, wrote the following lines about the waterfall,
“…is three miles distant from Keswick and presents a singularly harmonious assemblage of the sublime and beautiful. It is the Niagra of Derwent Water and is situated near the head of the lake. The stupendous crags between which the torrent precipitates itself, are broken into the broadest forms, and covered with birch, ash and other trees, which hang in the most fantastic shapes from the fissures of the rock”.
