Photos of Derwentwater

Derwentwater is the largest of the northern lakes, and the one most visited by tourists to the area. Keswick is the major town in the area; it sits at the northern tp of the lake and is a centre for outdoor activities. There are extremely popular walks in the area, including Skiddaw and Catbells. The most visited attraction is probably Castlerigg Stone Circle, a prehistoric site located just outside Keswick itself.
