The Lake District National Park includes all of the central Lake District, though the town of Kendal , some coastal areas, and the Lakeland Peninsulas are outside the park boundary. The area was designated a national park on 9 May less than a month after the first UK national park designation ó the Peak District. Individual farmers and other private landowners, with more than half of the agricultural land farmed by the owners.

The Forestry Commission and other investors in forests and woodland. It runs a visitor centre on Windermere at a former country house called Brockhole , [9] Coniston Boating Centre, [10] and Information Centres. It is reducing its landholding.

The lakes and mountains combine to form impressive scenery. Farmland and settlement have altered the natural scenery, and the ecology has been modified by human influence for millennia and includes important wildlife habitats.

Having failed in a previous attempt to gain World Heritage status as a natural World Heritage Site , because of human activities, it was eventually successful in the category of cultural landscape and was awarded the status in There are, however, only a handful of major settlements within this mountainous area, the towns of Keswick , Windermere , Ambleside , and Bowness-on-Windermere being the four largest. Significant towns immediately outside the boundary of the national park include Millom , Barrow-in-Furness , Kendal , Ulverston , Dalton-in-Furness, Cockermouth , Penrith , and Grange-over-Sands ; each of these has important economic links with the area.

The economies of almost all are intimately linked with tourism. Beyond these are a scattering of hamlets and many isolated farmsteads, some of which are still tied to agriculture; others now function as part of the tourist economy.

It is flanked to the east by the A6 road which runs from Kendal to Penrith though the extension approved in is east of the A6. The A which connects the M6 to Barrow-in-Furness , and the A trunk roads cut across its southern fringes and the A66 trunk road between Penrith and Workington cuts across its northern edge. Finally the A trunk road runs through the coastal plains to the west of the area, linking the A66 with the A Besides these, a few A roads penetrate the area itself, notably the A which runs north-westwards from Kendal to Windermere and then on to Keswick.

It continues up the east side of Bassenthwaite Lake. Some valleys which are not penetrated by A roads are served by B roads. Other valleys such as Little Langdale , Eskdale and Dunnerdale are served by minor roads. The last of these is connected with the first two by the Wrynose and Hardknott passes respectively; both of these passes are known for their steep gradients and are together one of the most popular climbs in the United Kingdom for cycling enthusiasts.

Wasdale is served by a cul-de-sac minor road, as are Longsleddale and the valleys at Haweswater and Kentmere. There are networks of minor roads in the lower-lying southern part of the area, connecting numerous communities between Kendal, Windermere and Coniston. Railways once served Broughton-in-Furness and Coniston closed to passengers in and another ran from Penrith to Cockermouth via Keswick closed west of Keswick in and completely in Part of the track of the latter is used by the improved A66 trunk road.

The Cumbrian Coast line has three stations within the boundaries of the national park and additionally Drigg , about a third of a mile from the park boundary. The line gives railway enthusiasts and others a flavour of a pre- Beeching railway line, with features like manually operated level crossing gates, as well as giving a good connection to the steam railway into Eskdale and providing access for cyclists and serious walkers to the Western Fells.

Another heritage railway , the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway , runs between Lake Windermere and Haverthwaite , and tourists can connect at Lakeside with the boats up the lake to Bowness. A vehicle-carrying cable ferry , the Windermere Ferry , runs frequent services across Windermere. Footpaths and bridleways[ edit ] There are many paths over which the public has a right of way , all of which should be signposted.

There is also a general " right to roam " in open country. Historically these paths were not planned for reaching summits, but more recently they are used by fell walkers for that purpose. Motor vehicles are only allowed on "byways open to all traffic" green lanes but in practice Traffic Regulation Orders have been brought in on several prohibiting motor traffic, although a system of permits operates on Gatesgarth Pass. Most of these valleys display the U-shaped cross-section characteristic of glacial origin, and often contain elongate lakes occupying sizeable bedrock hollows, often with tracts of relatively flat ground at their heads.

Smaller lakes known as tarns occupy glacial cirques at higher elevations. It is the abundance of both which has led to the area becoming known as the Lake District. The mountains of the Lake District are also known as the "Cumbrian Mountains", although this name is less frequently used than terms like "the Lake District" or "the Lakeland Fells".

Many of the higher fells are rocky, while moorland predominates at lower altitudes. Vegetation cover across better drained areas includes bracken and heather , though much of the land is boggy , due to the high rainfall. Deciduous native woodland occurs on many steeper slopes below the tree line , but with native oak supplemented by extensive conifer plantations in many areas, particularly Grizedale Forest in the generally lower southern part of the area. Panorama of the Wasdale screes descending into Wastwater, the deepest lake in England.

The valleys break the mountains up into separate blocks, which have been described by various authors in different ways. The most frequently encountered approach is that made popular by Alfred Wainwright who published seven separate area guides to the Lakeland Fells. Woodlands[ edit ] Below the tree line are wooded areas, including British and European native oak woodlands and introduced softwood plantations.

The woodlands provide habitats for native English wildlife. The native red squirrel is found in the Lake District and in a few other parts of England. In parts of the Lake District the rainfall is higher than in any other part of England. This gives Atlantic mosses , ferns , lichen , and liverworts the chance to grow.

There is some ancient woodland in the National Park. Management of the woodlands varies:
