The Lake District
Snowy Scafell Range

Index to clickable maps of the LakesThe Lake District is my favourite part of Britain. The rugged grandeur of the mountains contrasts with the gentle prosperity of the larger towns and the tranquility of the lakes to produce a landscape unequalled in England.

Link to map showing location of main lakesWe start our coverage of the Lake District with a look at the Lakes themselves, including a map showing the location of the main lakes. We now have more detailed clickable maps of the Lake District

Link to contour map of lake districtWe currently have eighty walks in the Lake District, accessible from our clickable map, while our Guide to the Lake District is growing all the time. Our walks range from gentle strolls up to major mountain expeditions, reflecting the impressive amount of variety of landscapes in the Lake District.

To see our collection of photographs of the Lakes go to our Lake District Picture Gallery Index.

We are now opening a guide to the individual fells of the Lake District, starting with a Wasdale index and articles on Kirk Fell and Scoat Fell
