Ruskin Memorial, Friar's Crag
This memorial for the Victorian visionary, John Ruskin (1819 - 1900), is located on Friar's Crag, by the east shore of Derwentwater, about ½ mile south-east of Keswick. The memorial is made from a vertical slab of local slate; on the side facing the lake is a bust of Ruskin in relief. The memorial is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England.
"The first thing which I remember as an event in my life was being taken by my nurse to the brow of Friar's Crag on Derwentwater" (John Ruskin)
