Derwent Isles & Catbells
Derwent Island was owned by Fountains Abbey and used by monks, but with the dissolution of the monasteries, it became property of the Crown in 1539. In 1569 it was sold to the Company of Mines Royal who built a camp on the island where they kept animals, grew vegetables and brewed beer. William Wordsworth was upset by the building, feeling it spoiled the view. The lake occupies part of Borrowdale and lies immediately south of the town of Keswick. It is both fed and drained by the River Derwent. It measures approx. 3 miles by 1 mile wide and is some 72 feet deep. There are several islands within the lake, one of which is inhabited. Derwent water is a place of considerable scenic value. It is surrounded by fells and many of the slopes facing Derwent water are extensively wooded.
