The Bridge House, Ambleside
Bridge House was built over Stock Ghyll in the 17th century, probably as a summer house and apple store for Ambleside Hall. It has had many other uses, including as a weaving shed, a counting house for the mills, a family home (for eight people) a cobblerís and a chairmakerís. A stove was added in the 19th century when it became a tea house. In the 1940s it was also used as a bric-a-brac and antiques shop. It was purchased by local people in 1926 and given to the National Trust.
