Former Ambleside May Queens and attendants can take a nostalgic look back at what what was once a highlight of village life with old photographs in Ambleside Library.

The May Queen would be about 15 years old, accompanied by two train and crown-bearers and the annual coronation was held on a Friday in May in the Ambleside Assembly Rooms. The new Queen and attendants would be photographed in the garden at Wraysholme, Millans Park.

Old photographs of Ambleside’s Crowning Glories will be on display at Ambleside Library until mid-June, as part of Local History Month.  Ambleside Oral History archive also has interviews recounting May Queen celebrations at www.aohg.org.uk

Its been a beautiful sunny weekend, and spring is certainly in the air, with summer not far behind we hope.
The leaves are appearing on the trees and there are plenty of lambs in the fields.
The good weather and holidays has brought lots of people to the area and the hotel is pretty full, so lovely to see so many familiar faces and plenty of new guests as well, hopefully to become familiar faces in the future.
We still have some availability for the coming weeks so please give us a call if you fancy a break.
