Bridge over the River Derwent in the Lake District, Cumbria, pictured during summer.
The River Derwent winds through some of England's most picturesque countryside. From its sources above Borrowdale valley in the English Lake District, the river flows towards Derwentwater in the north-west of the National Park close to Keswick. The area's agricultural heritage is evident throughout its landscape, with rolling fields marked by ancient stone walls in between quiet settlements. Borrowdale is also overlooked by some of the Lakes' highest mountain peaks; today the valley is considered to be one of the National Park's most attractive locations.
