I was in Keswick on Tuesday and as can be seen there were very folk about, on what was a very overcast, damp, cold day. The first view is of Main Street looking towards the iconic Moot Hall. 
Keswick town centre was almost deserted!
The Golden Lion. See next photo. 
Close up of the Golden Lion.
Kings Arms Hotel.
Stood in front of the Moot Hall, looking in the other direction in comparison to the first photo in this series. 
Oddfellows Arms
The Old Keswickian Chippy was closed. 
Pack Horse Yard.
Pack Horse Inn.
The unusually named Paraffin Alley.
A dog friendly pub - Dog & Gun.
