Recently I uploaded a post about Brough Castle, one of several in the Eden Valley area belonging to Lady Anne Clifford in the 17th century.  Yesterday I snatched this quick shot of another of the long-ago residences of this remarkable lady, Brougham Castle, just outside Penrith and beautifully situated beside the River Eamont, the river that flows out of Ullswater at Pooley Bridge in the Lake District a few miles away and eventually merges with the Eden before flowing north and west into the Solway Firth.
