This is Penrith, a market town in the county of Cumbria, NW England. It is just a couple of miles outside the Lake District national park. It was a dull rainy day when I visited a few weeks ago, creating a few reflections on the wet pavements and roads.
The George hotel has a long history as a coaching inn. Penrith was on the main route from England to Scotland and in 1745 during the Jacobite uprising 'The Young Pretender or Bonnie Prince Charlie' Prince Charles Edward Stuart stayed here on his march South.

Just on the edge of the town are the remains of Penrith Castle built at the end of the 14th century. It was built to defend the area against the Scots.
