Lakes & Legends of the British Isles: The Lake District



50 mins.

In this DVD we travel to The Lake District, a corner of the British Isles which is truly blessed by nature, an ancient mountainous kingdom in whose rugged people are as individual as the remarkable countryside.

Starting out at Windermere, the most popular of all the lakes, we’ll travel the length and breadth of this fascinating land. We will see the ancient ceremonies; we will meet the people who are prepared to risk their lives to save others. We’ll hear the ghostly legends of the lakes and waterfalls and wonder at the mysterious stone shapes created by ancient man.

Here spectres from the past still stalk the soaring mountains. Here was the inspiration for some of the greatest poetry in the English language. For here is the Lake District of England, a fascinating panorama of Blessings and Curses:

• Windermere• Coniston• Hawkshead• Leverswater• Scafell• Wastwater• Muncaster Castle• Hardknott Pass• Derwent Water• Grasmere• Ullswater• Haweswater• Kendal• Ambleside
