Drawing 322: Whiteside
Direction of view: ENE
Notes: It is impossible to reproduce this image with pine trees. For the best picture, park at Lanthwaite Green, and take the footpath southwest, down a lane. It turns 90 degrees left, through a field, towards Lanthwaite Wood. The best viewpoint is just before the entrance to the wood. This scene does not appear elsewhere in Wainwright’s published works.
Peter Messenger’s picture from the late 1970s shows Lanthwaite Farm.
I took this picture for the first time on 22nd June 2018, a day getting photos of sketches around the Buttermere Valley (see also 23, 191, 385, 210 and 91). In the picture below, Lanthwaite Farm is hidden by the trees.
