About the neighbourhood
Bassenthwaite Lake is owned by the National Park Authority and is one of the largest measuring in at almost 4 miles long and ¾ mile wide; but also one of the shallowest with a maximum depth of around 70ft.

There has been speculation that Bassenthwaite Lake and Derwent Water in Keswick were once one larger lake.

It is also said that Bassenthwaite Lake is home to the Eachy: a species of Lake Monster - a large humanoid being of gruesome and slimy appearance. The Eachy has been spotted as late as 1973 when it was photographed twice.

Bassenthwaite Village is located a short distance from Basset...
