Village Guide

The Lake District in the United Kingdom is located in the county of Cumbria.  Measuring at 885 miles square, and a total of 11 parks you will no doubt need a Lake District Village Guide so you don’t get lost and are able to see the majority of things that are possible in a vacation in the Lake District!
The Lake District has a population of around 42,000 people.  There is a lot of old English folklore to many locations in the Lake District Village.  To do a good Lake District Villages Guide you need to go over what made the cities through the years.
One of the bigger industries in the Neolithic years for the Lake District Villages was stone axes.  There is a site in Langdale Pikes that was a factory for axes.  Plus you can’t forget the sheep farming, which is still done in several areas of the Lake District.  Some areas that are most known for sheep farming are Herdwick, Rough Fell, and of course Swaledale.  Plus a bit of dairy farming in some areas and silage, in 2001 the foot and mouth disease killed a bunch of sheep in the area.
Mining of cooper or lead plus the other mining of barite, slate, and graphite are done in the Lake District Villages also.  Most of the areas have been mined out, but there is still some mining done in Honister Pass.  While traveling you can notice several mines that were working in the past, it’s a quite interesting part of history to see and to be included in a Lake District Villages Guide.
You also have several famous people who have travelled and stayed in the Lake District that should be included in any kind of Lake District Villages Guide.  William Wordsworth is one of the more famous celebrities of the past who has stayed in the Lake District.  Also Thomas Grey and Beatrix Potter are two others who would frequent the Lake District.
Of course another thing you cannot leave out when creating a Lake District Villages Guide are the famous people who were local residents of the Lake District.  These include Nathaniel Hawthorne, Henry Crabb Robinson, Gerald Massey, Thomas Carlyle, and John Keats.  This is not a full list of some of the famous natives who you would include in a Lake District Villages Guide.
Also when you are building a Lake District villages Guide you will want to include all the different outdoor activities that a person spending vacation in a Lake District Village could do.  They are numerous and include such things as kayaking, walking trails either by yourself or on a guided tour, horseback riding, riding on the steamers, looking at the beautiful scenery, bird watching with is very popular.
So if you want to have a Lake District Villages Guide you have a bunch of things that should be included, because this area is so rich in history that it would be a wonderful place to go a vacation.
