Windermere (Cumbria)

Windermere is a town in Cumbria (England) with 2295 inhabitants, about one kilometer from the lake of the same name situated away. Although Windermere does not directly touch the lake, it has now grown together with the older lakeside town of Bowness- on-Windermere, though the two places have retained their own respective center. In Windermere there are some museums, but the main attraction for visitors is the lake of Bowness at the foot of the hill touched, about a twenty minute walk from the top of the village of Windermere.

Until the construction of the railway in the Kendal and Windermere Railway Windermere was called Birth Waite; the development of the village was funded by the railroad. From Windermere Station, trains and bus lines are in the surrounding areas, Manchester, Manchester Airport and the West Coast Main Line.

The geological formations of the area are named after the village. The sedimentary rock is called Windermere Group.

Windermere is since 1998 in a city partnership with Diessen (Upper Bavaria) connected, where the "Friends Ammersee -Windermere eV " the partnership maintains.
