Surely some of the most picturesque countryside in England may be found in the Lake District, and Bassenthwaite is a prime example of this beautiful area. The nearby Lake of the same name is over four miles long, and is three quarters of a mile wide.

The photographs on this page were kindly shared with us by Mrs. Ros Downing.
