The Lake District, England

Pada hari ini genaplah sudah usia poskad ini 28 tahun.

The English Lake District National Park is England's largest and covers 2292 square kilometres (885 square miles), the largest of the 11 national parks in England & Wales, containing over 1800 miles of footpaths through some of Britain's most beautiful countryside. The variety of spectacular mountains, peaceful lakes, rolling fells and bustling market towns make the Lake District a unique part of Britain and is also one of the most visited parts of the country.

The Lake District is the wettest place in England. It is also the most mountainous with 100 peaks over 2,000 feet and 16 lakes including the longest and deepest in the country. Five hundred million years ago the Lakes stood on the edge of the so-called "ring of fire". This was an area of intensive volcanic activity with lava and basalt being thrown up resulting in the creation of some of the area's craggy peaks.

Twelve thousand years ago the area was covered by ice which sculpted the landscape. In 1951, the Lake District was designated as a National Park to protect it for future generations. The Lake District is famous for its lakes, mountains and fells, and its association with the 19th century poetry and writings of William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and the Lake Poets.
