  • 500 million years of geological

  • Processes have produced within the Lake District a stunning landscape of mountains and lakes of great scenic beauty

  • It's the largest national park in England and Wales and a UNESCO World Heritage Site

  • many of the geographical features in the Lake District are the result of periods of glaciation the most recent of which ended only

  • 15,000 years ago

  • Retreating glaciers carved out the huge smooth u-shaped valleys steep sharp ridges and impressive lakes

  • which characterized this landscape it has England's highest mountain and

  • deepest and longest lake

  • It is covered with forests and farms tiny quaint villages and priests little towns

  • It's famous for its lakes mountains classic food

  • Tea and cake really good ice cream and cheap on the road

  • Because there are a lot of sheep a lot of them

  • Pharming and in particular sheep farming has been the major industry in the region since Roman times and Lenz at that iconic. Look

  • features such as dry stone walls

  • are there as a result of sheep farming forestry is also great importance and

  • Also, it just looks really really nice

  • When my mother was just a few weeks old my grandparents bought a holiday house in Little Valley and came for weekends and holidays

  • until they retired here we would come up to visit them every

  • School holiday for weeks at a time and at Christmas the whole family stayed together all of my arm tears all of my cousins

  • Yes, that's a lot of cousins and a lot of presents

  • The latest rake seemed like a magical dream place to me and every time we left I could hardly him believe it was real

  • I loved it so much

  • It's been a very popular area for a long time however since the end of the 18th century

  • In

  • 1778 Thomas West produced a guide to the lakes which began the era of modern tourism

  • William Wordsworth published his guide to the lakes in

  • 1810 now called a guide through the district to the lakes in the north of England, which is not necessarily long title

  • This book was particularly influential in popularizing the region

  • This year

  • We'll come up with various family members including our little baby nephew and we're staying there Ambleside which is at the very tip of Wyndemere

  • Due to those repeated glaciations we mentioned earlier

  • most of you shaped valleys contain elongated legs

  • Occupying sizeable bedrock colors often with tracks of relatively flat ground at their heads which is where you'll find little towns

  • Smaller lakes such as talents can be found at higher elevations

  • It's the abundance of both which has led to the area becoming known as the late district

  • The UK's largest conservation organization the National Trust started here in 1895

  • Previously conservation had only cared about the land but now houses were cared for too

  • The National Trust owns about a quarter of the total area fellate district including some lakes and land of significant landscape value

  • House we're staying in Skakel woods

  • Which is not an easy thing to spell and I may be saying it incorrectly is a house of significant beauty

  • Built in 1899 in the Arts and Crafts style. It has many original features

  • And their darling so we have arrived at her destination and we're staying in the most wonderful beautiful house

  • Even though I did think that we were almost going to destroy the car on the way up here from handle side

  • That was one hell of a path. I must say

  • I'm going to show you around the house

  • So as you can tell the house is incredibly old and this is its original

  • Porch way the one that we just came in through is modern and it has look at these doors

  • Absolutely, stunning and everything

  • And

  • Through here we have the living room

  • So in this fireplace we're going to hopefully light fire tonight and sit around and chat read our books or something

  • I'm really into my latest for Gregory, but the room continues on and here there are

  • one

  • two

  • three

  • four

  • Sofas in here and another window seat here. This is my favorite little seat in the whole house

  • We're after the living room

  • Into the main hallway through here

  • Is the kitchen, dining room, new kitchen

  • Here the games room

  • And this is our bedroom

  • Gorgeous these are sleigh bed, right the sleigh bed it tilts this way and here it tilts that way

  • that way it's a smooth but

  • I've got my clothes already enough to own a mirror.

  • Hi Me, this is where I'm going to do my makeup

  • window seats out into the garden

  • and

  • This extra bed and this extra birth, which is now the equipment bed

  • Back in the three-way whole section part again

  • Forwards this is the dining room

  • No from the dining room into the kitchen

  • Back in the hallway. There's beautiful doors now going up the stairs

  • Even more bedrooms around this corner

  • Looking out her stuff

  • Lilly... the room that we're about to enter is most definitely my favorite

  • Expect it's so gorgeous. It has a beautiful canopy.

  • Oh, who doesn't want a four post bed

  • The funny thing is the last time we stayed in the lakes

  • They said in this be useful at a cottage and it was so perfect and it had everything that we needed

  • And the dogs really loved it and had a garden that was really safe for them to play in

  • so they really enjoyed it and had a great time and

  • I loved it that Oh who's about like it was a bit small more. There was a bit all over the place

  • that we are staying now

  • Stunning clearly. There's always a but, because we were going around all the different bedrooms and

  • it's like that's not quite right for this and that and who isn't my right because of this and I realized

  • But is it it's not the cottage it's lovely, but it's not the cottage

  • It's not my home and that made me feel

  • Wistful to realize that I suppose. Yeah. I've been coming here almost 30 years now

  • For all of my life. I've been going out of my life and things changed the little shops change

  • But the cottage can never changed. It's always fixed in my memory

  • I doesn't matter because every time we come to the Lake District, I'm always picturing it in my mind

  • I'm always picturing that that's where I'm going and maybe because we moved when I was little but that always it was the one

  • Constant building in my life. I hope someday that I have that feeling with another building with the building

  • I can actually go to very regularly

  • How did the joy at the latest rate is that at last for a holiday

  • Whatever type you choose from active hiking and exercise to quiet retreats

  • Look at that bicep

  • You have such huge muscle

  • Whether you like climbing mountains or wandering through old villages there's surely something to do

  • Even if you're not much of a walker, but still enjoys stroll in nature

  • There are several very easy books that could be done with the buggy, which is essentially a glorified Zimmer frame

  • All of this beauty is very inspirational of course and many famous poems writings and paintings have been inspired by the Lakeland

  • William Wordsworth poem "Have wandered lonely as a cloud"

  • Inspired by the sight of daffodils and the shores of Oz water remains one of the most famous in the English language

  • other famous creatives inspired by the late district includes Haniel Coolidge Arthur Ransome, John Ruskin

  • JMW Turner LS Lowry and of course Beatrix Potter

  • So a thing happened

  • We were so really careful all the way all the time

  • We're in the Lake District and Claud put my special walking boots on whenever we were going over anything in any way

  • But yeah to like support your ankles and you know

  • Like ready for all terrain and there's other like different sort of stones and cobbles like , she put them on me

  • I can't put them on myself and we took a lot of consideration on whether she could do

  • Certain walks that my family we're gonna be doing or not doing so for instance like for my sister's birthday

  • We had the planned walk like a three and a half mile walk to a pub which try things like lovely

  • So I was like I really want to do that. Yay

  • Deserving of my pint and so on

  • But we were like like I thinking more sure you sure we need she would do that. should we not do that

  • we thought you've already got one way but not both ways even one way I

  • I'm not entirely sure who thought I could I do. Basically I was comparing it to walking around shopping malls in Malaysia

  • I was like, it would be a bit like walking around the shopping mall all day

  • We decided to drop Jessica off at the pub first and via a car

  • Then we walked to meet her and then you got a taxi home with my dad. Yeah

  • It was no walking for me. It's been really careful the whole time

  • We considered what Jessica could and can do and then we got home

  • Jessica kinda was helping me with bags and unpacking out the car, and then I twisted my ankle on the pavement outside our own house

  • Yeah, literally 2 meters from our front door since I went to this really rough outdoors terrain up north

  • Walking through boots, polls. Its real difficult pavement. We had all the gear

  • First aid kit. It's the most kind of like that's always the way isn't it. Yeah. I am prepared...

  • I'm prepared it just sucks because we were so

  • Careful in the Lake District. Yeah when we're on our walk. My sister was like

  • Its a shame Jessica couldn't come with us

  • I was like, yeah, but you know

  • This really would have been way too hard for like even as considering her going one way was not a suitable

  • I'm so glad that we decide to no look you're disabled

  • You're not gonna go in this three and a half mile walk

  • And you know, I was like, yeah, I forget about her disabilities because she's like so well

  • It's sort of she like did I say hidden a lot of the time are they and I was like, yeah, but you know

  • She is blind in one eye

  • So she has no depth perception, so she doesn't really know where she's placing her foot

  • She can't actually have sensory feedback of where she's placing her feet because of her nerve

  • Condition and then on top of that she has like a left foot drop say like, you know

  • It kind of drags that one along a bit and oh, yeah, she's deaf

  • So her balance is all completely off set and like, you know, even if she gets her foot in the right place

  • She probably gonna fall over for no apparent reason dude. My sister was just like oh

  • Yeah

  • She's really like disabled.

  • Yeah, that's why we need to remind ourselves that you can't just go on a three and a half mile walk

  • Yeah Just because everyone else is and I get a little bit like I wish you could come to the gym with me

  • Does not go to the gym. It's all a lie

  • But I wish I was one nice fitness freaks. It's never going to happen

  • I'm not the one stopping here. You are I signed up to yoga class tonight, and he made me ganz licks

  • He said I'd be too tired. How do you feel right now?

  • Yeah, I am kind of glad I am not...

  • Just happy sipping my actually, know your limitations

  • Yeah, and then you'll be able to enjoy yourself to the fullest, communicate them to others around you and watch out

  • Thank you for watching our second scrapbook video. We can try and make more of them. Mmm

  • They're really fun to make do you know where next months is?

  • Ohh LA
