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
