柯克比-朗斯代爾需要100萬英鎊來拯救著名的羅斯金景觀

競選者正試圖籌集100萬英鎊,以開放被稱為英格蘭 "最可愛的風景之一 "的通道。

維多利亞時代的作家和藝術評論家約翰-羅斯金非常喜歡從柯克比-朗斯代爾的Church Brow眺望的景色,它被稱為羅斯金的景色。

但是,由於下面的盧恩河的侵蝕,通往該處的道路已經變得不穩定,並被關閉,直到它能夠被修復。

"我們有很多人想來看看這個景色,如果沒有這次募捐,我們就無法把它找回來。"

英國藝術家JMW Turner在1822年繪製的一幅場景畫給羅斯金留下了深刻的印象,他說他不知道還有什麼地方 "更自然神聖"。

但是,盧恩河頻繁的洪水使觀景點變得不穩定,道路不得不被關閉。

"他說:"斜坡正在滑落,欄杆開始彎曲,石頭正在開裂。

議會成立了拯救羅斯金景觀運動,並希望在一年內籌集100萬英鎊來修復和重新開放這條路。

活動志願者Laura Keeler說,這個景點 "不僅對居民很重要",對遊客和企業也很重要。

鎮上的企業也加入了籌款的行列,柯克比-朗斯代爾啤酒廠生產了一種專用啤酒,以特納畫這一著名場景的年份命名為1822。


Campaigners are trying to raise £1m to open up access to a view described as "one of the loveliest" in England.

Victorian writer and art critic John Ruskin was so partial to the outlook from Church Brow in Kirkby Lonsdale it became known as Ruskin's View.

But the path to it has become unstable due to erosion by the River Lune below and is closed until it can be repaired.

"We've had so many people who want to come and look at the view and, without this fundraising, we won't be able to get it back."

A picture of the scene painted by English artist JMW Turner in 1822 impressed Ruskin, who said he did not know of a place "more naturally divine".

But the frequent flooding of the River Lune has left the viewpoints unstable and the path has had to be closed off.

"The slope is slipping away, the railings are beginning to bend, the stone is cracking," he said.

The council set up the Save Ruskin's View campaign and is hoping to raise £1m within a year to restore and reopen the path.

Campaign volunteer Laura Keeler said the attraction was "not just important for the residents" but for tourists and businesses as well.

Businesses in the town are joining in the fundraising effort, with the Kirkby Lonsdale Brewery producing a dedicated ale, named 1822 after the year Turner painted the famous scene.
