Welcome to Thirlmere, home of great water!
Thirlmere is not a natural lake but a reservoir which contains about 11 per cent of the North West’s water supply – about one glass of water in every nine comes from here.
Thirlmere’s fascinating history and staggering beauty have earned it critics and admirers throughout its life. There’s lots to see whether you like local history, native wildlife, fantastic feats of engineering or just somewhere nice to take the kids.
