According to legend, Buttermere Lake in the English Lake District was the site of a hidden stronghold used by guerrillas fighting the Normans until the 1200s. ‘The twin valleys of Buttermere and Borrowdale encapsulate the essence of the Lakeland landscape – a pastoral tapestry of green fields, cottages, rickety barns and rolling fells stitched together by mile upon mile of winding dry-stone walls’ // photo by Justin Foulkes in our February '12 feature 'Perfect Trip: the Lake District'
