National Park Lake District
The Lake District National Park is located in the north-west of England and is the largest of the English National Parks and the second largest in the United Kingdom. It is in the central and most-visited part of the Lake District.
The National Park was formed in 1951 to protect the landscape by restricting unwelcome change from industry or commerce.
The highest mountains in England are within the Park boundary. The lakes and mountains combine to form impressive scenery unique to this corner of England.
Lakes and rivers are cool and generally unpolluted. The level of nutrients in the water of different lakes varies providing a variety of habitats for various plant and animal species. Charr, crayfish, Schelly and whitefish in differentlakes.
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. Woodlands are differently managed: some are coppiced, some pollarded, some left to grow naturally, and some provide grazing and shelter.
I must find out what this mountain is called, it is obviously one of the bigger ones in the National Park.
