Windermere, at 10.5 miles long, one mile wide and 220 feet deep, is the largest natural lake in England, and is fed by numerous rivers. The Romans built their fort of GALAVA at its northern end (Waterhead) and it has always been an important waterway for movement of heavy materials. We will visit and travel through Bowness-on-Windermere – Lakeland’s most popular holiday resort – and an excellent centre for boating activities, with over 10,000 boats registered. Until March 2005 Windermere was the only lake without a speed limit, but a 10 mph limit has now been imposed.
