Watching the ferry crossing at Far Sawrey to Bowness-on-windermere, Cumbria's Lake Windermere transports you literally to the serenity and beauty of the Lake District.
Lake Windermere, at 12 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.
