Lake District 2013
The Lake District is a mountainous region in the north-west English county of Cumbria and is home to the second-largest and most-visited national park in the UK. There are supposed to be approximately 1,000 lakes in the Lake District and one of those, Windermere, is the largest natural lake in England. Despite the name Lake District, there is only one body of water in the national park that bears the word Lake in its name, that being Bassenthwaite Lake. The other bodies of water in the Lake District are mainly referred to as Mere, Water, Tarn or Reservoir. With a height of 978 metres, the Scafell Pike in the national park is the highest mountain in England.
