Derwent Island was once owned by the monks of Fountains Abbey. The only island to be inhabited, it was once the home of German miners working in the area. The island and its house, which was considered by Wordsworth to be a blot on the landscape, have, since the 1950's been owned by the National Trust, the public are allowed to visit five days a year.

Hi Anne

The Lake District is indeed a magical place, and many fall in love with the area and are continually drawn back. It inspired the great English Lakeland Poets such as Wordsworth and others.

I have placed a link above for more information.

Best wishes, Peter

Thank you for the additional information and the link, Peter! It is very interesting! Derwentwater and the entire Lake District must be a wonderful place! I've never been there but would sure like to visit one day. Have a nice Sunday afternoon! Best wishes, Anne
