Lake District

The Lake District is a nature reserve in the North-West of England, founded in 1951. The Lake District is located between the borders of Scotland, Northumberland, Durham, North Yorkshire and Lancashire. For many centuries, tourists have been attracted by a beautiful landscape: mountains, valleys, lakes and waterfalls. In the Victorian era, the area became very popular as a resort area, and the current status of the national park ensures environmental protection.

general information
On the territory of the national park “Lake District” area of ​​1440 square meters. km there are 16 natural lakes and several reservoirs, 180 hills higher than 600 m and five more than 900. Scapell Pike (978 m) is the highest mountain in England.

This is a delightful beauty, the most beloved and most jealously guarded corner of the earth, where many people are trying to go. There are problems: overpopulation of towns, noise from which the lakes suffer. However, the vast majority of visitors visit these places, mostly in the summer and on weekends. The hills encircling the Lake District are still surprisingly deserted. During hiking, be reasonably careful and check the weather forecast before you go.

The highlands of the central part are a wonderful area for hiking, here the valleys, lakes and mountain ranges diverge in all directions. Lake Windermere – the largest in England, and the city of Bowes-on-Windermere every year, a lot of tourists gather. If you do not like the city bustle, you can rent a boat and enjoy the views from the water. The least visited, besides the deepest lake is Vast Water. Getting to it is harder than to other lakes, because it is surrounded by harsh mountains and high peaks.

The western part of the Lake District has many viewing platforms – they have been created here for a long time and have great aesthetic value. In several places, buildings were erected here, which appeared here in those times to encourage tourists. Parts of the Kleiv station built here once can be seen today.

In the southwestern part of the Lake District there are several excellent paths, starting at the stations of the miniature railway Ravenglass-Ezdale, along which tiny locomotives are pulling carriages from the seaside Ravenglass to the foot of the hills at Daylgart.

Keswick is located in the northern part of the Lake District, it is an important center for hiking and climbing. From here begins the Cumbria-Way trail, which is almost 113 km long. Keswick was particularly popular with prominent figures of the Victorian era, the museum contains the original manuscripts of Wordsworth, Raskin and other writers, in the art gallery – the work of Turner and Wilson Steer. Words-Worth lived in the town of Rydal Mound for 37 years, not far from his house is the Dora Field, so named after his daughter and planted in memory of her narcissus.

This is an amazing place for lovers of the pristine natural landscape formed by lakes and hills. Westwater is the darkest, deepest and coldest of all the lakes. Its southeastern shores are solid scree. A small church and tavern in Wesdale Head clung to the foot of the hill, and behind them the Great Gable rises.

In this trade town, in a house that is now called Wordsworth House (NPS), were born Wordsworth: William – April 7, 1770, Dorothy – on Christmas Eve, 1771. Their father John rests on a shady little cemetery.
