The Lake District is a popular holiday destination, it is famous for its lakes, forests and mountains. Historically split between Cumberland, Westmorland and Lancashire, the Lake District is now entirely in Cumbria. All the land in England higher than 3,000 ft (910 m) above sea level lies within the National Park, including Scafell Pike, the highest mountain in England. It also contains the deepest and longest lakes in England, Wastwater and Windermere. Many walkers, hikers and lovers of the natural environment are drawn to the attractions of the Lake District and some, such as those listed below are inspired to write about their passion for the area.
