Ambleside Rushbearing takes place this Saturday, 2 July. The tradition of rushbearing dates back at least 500 years, when communities celebrated the annual gathering of rushes each summer to provide a new covering for church floors.

Despite stone replacing rushes many years ago, Ambleside has kept up the ceremony.
