PLACE OF THE WEEK
Derwentwater, Lake District
This incredible body of water in the Lake District stretches for three miles. It contains four major islands; Derwent Island, Lord’s Island, Rampsholme Island and St Herbert’s Island. The Earl of Derwentwater once lived on Lord’s Island, and the remains of his house can still be seen in the undergrowth.
Derwentwater is the perfect place for water sports. The 2016 film, Swallows and
Amazons, was filmed here, and canoes for hire allow visitors to explore the movie’s locations.
