Lake Win­der­mere

Exclusively British - - GREAT HOUSES AND GARDENS OF YORKSHIRE & THE LAKE D -

The Lake District Prob­a­bly the best known lake in the coun­try, at 10.5 miles in length and one mile wide, Win­der­mere is the largest nat­u­ral lake in Eng­land and is fed by nu­mer­ous rivers. The Ro­mans built their fort of Galava at its north­ern end (Water­head) and it has al­ways been an im­por­tant wa­ter­way for the move­ment of heavy ma­te­ri­als. The best way to en­joy the lake is to take one of the tra­di­tional wooden launches which call at var­i­ous points along the shore.
