In Reply to: "Lake District" in England, Britain, UK or some such... posted by abe on July 23, 2004
: A couple of times recently I have read (printed material, sorry no links) about the "Lake District" and the context seems to be something to do with the British Empire. The last reference was to the birth of someone on a famous sailing ship. Can someone give me a one or two word geography lesson?
It's in NW England. Malcolm Campbell set some world water speed records on one of the several lakes, possibly Windermere. The area is part of a National Park, very beautiful but very wet!
