Green plaque № 11438 in Ambleside

How Head. People have lived here for over a thousand years. Behind you is How Head, the oldest lived-in building in Ambleside. Once the lodge of the Master Forester of the Barony of Kendal, parts date back to the 16th century. In front of you is the rebuilt pre-Tudor St. Anne's Chapel, formerly Ambleside's only place of worship. For many years, it was not registered to record marriages and deaths. This part of town was "Above Stock" and in the parish of Grasmere for burial. In the 19th century many small schools were sited here. Kelsick Cottages from the 18th century housed the ancient Kelsick Free School endowed in the 1723 will of local grocer's son John Kelsick.
