Artist's Description

Taken with a Fujifilm 10mp s8100.

This shelter is known locally as ‘the mushroom’ for its obvious resemblance. At first glance it looks like a modern addition, but it was actually built around 1911 to mark the Coronation of King George V.

Etched inside the inner rim of the dome is a 360 degree panorama of the surrounding fells and peaks.

On a good day, the views from here are exceptional for a scar of just 229 metres. Look carefully and you may see as far as Blackpool tower, the Old Man of Coniston, the Langdales and even across to the Yorkshire Dales.
