Lanercost

Not a million miles from Brampton - and next drop for the new guide - is an enchanting little spot called Lanercost. It doesn't look like the capital of England but for a few months over the winter of 1306-1307, this was where Edward I effectively governed the country from. The king was holed up at the 12th century priory with ill health, yet still planning another campaign against the Scots. The coffee and cakes you can get in the Lanercost Tea Room might have done him the power of good; certainly the cheer in the shop would have raised his Christmas spirits.
