Creating and Installing the Herdwick Stones
The Herdwick Stones were created by letter carver Charlotte Ruse. Charlotte lives and works in London but frequently visits Ullswater where her mother lives.
Charlotte worked closely with landowners Richard and Anne Lloyd to select where the Herdwick Stones would be mounted.
