It is the dramatic Lake District view that once inspired the celebrated painter JMW Turner to pick up his brush.

And now the spot of Brackenthwaite Hows has been saved for the public.

The site, which spans 77 acres, was bought by the National Trust for £202,000. A third of the value of the sale was donated back to the charity by two of the previous owners.
