The Lake District is situated in Cumbria in the north-west corner of England. It is a scenic mountainous area with several lakes. The area was made famous by the Lake poets Wordsworth and Coleridge. Beatrix Potter also based her Peter Rabbit books around Keswick in the Lake District.

The largest lakes are Derwentwater, Windermere, Buttermere, Thirlmere, Ullswater, Crummock Water, and Wast Water – Englands deepest lake.

The area is a national park and farming activity reflects this. Herdwick sheep are a distinct breed of sheep native to the area.

Just like Ireland the weather can be wet and stormy. In the photo a storm is brewing over Scafell Pike England’s highest mountain.

But never mind the weather when the sun sun shines it is a beautiful area well worth visiting.
