Lake­land goes global

Trail (UK) - - BASE CAMP -

The Lake Dis­trict is the UK’s new­est World Her­itage Site, and the first Na­tional Park to be des­ig­nated as such. The award was given in hon­our of its farm­ing her­itage, nat­u­ral beauty and the cre­ative in­spi­ra­tion it pro­vides, mak­ing the Lakes of­fi­cially a place of global, not just na­tional, sig­nif­i­cance. The ef­fects of this ac­co­lade, on tourism es­pe­cially, are as yet un­clear, but pride in the area and its recog­ni­tion are undis­puted.

Of­fi­cially cher­ish­able: clas­sic Lake­land scenery cour­tesy of Cat Bells and Der­went Water.
