Congratulations Lake District - World Heritage Site Awarded July 2017

Congratulations Lakeland – World Heritage Site Status Awarded July 2017


Congratulations to The Lake District National Park, which is celebrating its new status as a UNESCO World Heritage site, awarded in July 2017.


The Lake District is the largest National Park in England. It’s made up of beautiful natural scenery characterised by mountains, valleys, lakes and farmland. It’s located in Cumbria in the North West of England.


UNESCO (acronym for “The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization”) now officially recognises the Lakes as a place of global importance, and it now becomes legally protected internationally as a place of significance for humanity. No small matter then!


We – along with the many visitors and residents – are very aware of its beauty, and below you can appreciate it via some of the highlights from our video collection. It features Ullswater, Grasmere, Coniston Water, Bassenthwaite Lake, Derwent Water, Buttermere, Ennerdale Water, Rydal Water, Wast Water, Thirlmere, Crummock Water, Esthwaite Water, and Lake Windermere.
