The Lake District, also commonly known as The Lakes, is a mountainous region in North West England which is famous for its lakes and its mountains. The precise extent of the Lake District was not defined traditionally but is approximated by the boundary of the National Park. The Park extends just over 32 miles (52 km) from east to west and nearly 40 miles (64 km) from north to south. The four highest mountains in the Lake District each exceed 3000 ft (914m). These are; Scafell Pike, 978 m (3,210 ft); Scafell, 965 m (3,162 ft); Helvellyn, 951 m (3,118 ft) and Skiddaw, 931 m (3,054 ft). The area is home to a plethora of wildlife, some of which is unique in England. It provides a home for the red squirrel and colonies of sundew and butterwort, two of the few carnivorous plants native to Britain. England’s only nesting pair of Golden Eagles can be found in the Lake District. The female Golden Eagle has not been seen since 2004 although the male still remains.
