Artist's Description

The Duke of Portland Boathouse on a grey December morning. This 17th century boathouse (now a holiday cottage), is located near the North end of Ullswater Lake in the English Lake District National Park, Cumbria, just a short walk from the village of Pooley Bridge.

The boathouse once belonged to the 3rd Duke of Portland (1738-1809), but he became involved in a nine-year legal battle with Sir James Lowther and had to sell his Cumbrian assets to save himself from bankruptcy.

The boathouse foundations are believed to be original (from the 17th century) but the rest of the boathouse probably dates back to the Victorian era.
