Walk for Pleasure...... Self Guided in the English Lake District
The Lake District lies in the county of Cumbria, in England's north west corner. It is the largest of British National Parks, and is famous throughout the world for its beautiful and dramatic scenery. The mountains rise from sea level to heights of over 3000 feet (almost 1000 metres), and are intersected by lush green valleys, often containing lakes. There is also a wealth of history and heritage unrivalled in so small an area.
