The panorama from Brackenthwaite Hows was painted by JMW Turner in his 1797 watercolour Crummock Water, Looking Towards Buttermere, and offers splendid 360-degree views across the north-western Lakes. Also known as Lanthwaite Hill, the viewpoint was a popular stop in the Georgian and Victorian era but fell out of fashion. It has now been bought by the National Trust.
