Photos from the Lake District (Cumbria)

The names 'Cumbria' and 'Cumberland' are share the same celtic root as Cymru (the Welsh name of Wales, pronounced cum-ri) which originally meant 'compatriots' in Old Welsh. Cumbria contains the Lake District, one of the most beautiful areas of England. Much of the county is mountainous, with the highest point of the county (and of England) being Scafell Pike at 978 metres (3,209 ft) and boasts many beautiful lakes.
