Price : £9.00

Windermere is the largest lake in England at 10.5 miles long, one mile wide at its widest point and boasting a deepest point of 220 feet. As such, it was the very first inland water in England to make use of a mechanically powered vessel in 1845 when the Lady of the Lake took to the water carrying tourists up and down its length. Since then many thousands have enjoyed the scenic tranquillity that only a water voyage can bestow and today no less than thirteen boats transport the many visitors who come to the region to get away from the hurly burly of modern life for a while. This volume is a tribute to the many and varied vessels, both cable and free sailing, who have done sterling service upon the waters of Windermere over the years.
