August on Ullswater takes some beating when the weather’s fine. The lakeside and the nearby villages of Glenridding and Pooley Bridge took a severe clobbering though, in December 2015, when torrential rains caused major flooding and disruption that included the loss of a bridge, several hundred years old – the effects of which are still being felt. Repair and restoration works are still ongoing in homes, businesses, riverbeds and bridge building throughout the county of Cumbria. It’s all the lovelier to see the lake en fête this year
