Windermere ( In search of Snow )
« on: January 25, 2015, 04:25:33 PM »
Situated only around 1 hour from Blackpool is the Lake District, living in Blackpool  :tongue_smilie: We don't tend to see a lot of the old white stuff..

So we visited the lakes and Windermere... :thumbup1:

Windermere is the largest natural lake in England. It is a ribbon lake formed in a glacial trough after the retreat of ice at the start of the current interglacial. It has been one of the country's most popular places for holidays and summer homes since the arrival of the Kendal and Windermere Railway's branch line in 1847. It is in the county of Cumbria and entirely within the Lake District National Park.


Windermere is a ribbon lake. Ribbon lakes are long and narrow. It was formed 13,000 years ago during the last major ice age by two glaciers, one from the Troutbeck valley and the other from the Fairfield Horseshoe[citation needed]. When the glaciers melted the lake filled with the meltwater, which was held in by moraine (rock material) deposited by the glaciers. Scientifically, the lake is regarded as being 2 separate basins – north and south, with different characteristics influenced by the geology – hard volcanic rocks in the north basin, and softer shales in the south.

We decided on visiting Shap first and then work our way back down to Windermere..

Great images Peter :thumbup1:
