The Lake District has continuously grown in popularity and attracts new waves of devotees every year. It is a place of superlatives, the highest mountain in Britain, the smallest church, the highest passes, the steepest road and some of the finest places of outstanding beauty in Europe.
With 16 lakes, more than 150 high mountains, 100 sites of Special Scientific interest, over 50 dales and hundreds of towns, villages and hamlets within its 885 square miles, the Lake District is the largest National Park in Britain. For the walker there are 2,215 miles of rights of way, for the archaeologist, the botanist, the geologist, the historian and anyone who seeks pleasure in the countryside, there is a variety beyond measure and wealth of experience that exceeds expectation.
