Claife Station, Far Sawrey
The ruins of Claife viewing station, to the east of Far Sawrey, are located on the west shore of Lake Windemere. The station was built in the late 18th century for use as a viewing point for Lake Windermere, associated with the early tourist industry. At the time the station was built, 'picturesque principles' suggested that landscapes should be viewed from specific points only, where the elements of scenery were most pictorial. It is a property of the National Trust. The ruins are Grade II listed.
