How many lakes are there in the Lake District?
Five? Ten? A few dozen? Believe it or not, just one—Bassenthwaite Lake!
Well, actually, it might be nitpicking of a high order. The truth is, there a number of ‘water bodies’, but only one officially named ‘Lake’. The others are all ‘meres’ or ‘waters’, like Windermere, Buttermere, Derwent Water, Crummock Water!
So now you know! 😉
(By the way, I have plenty of lovely pictures of the above. Stay tuned!)
