Additional Details:
Wordsworth's Country - Lake Windermere, the largest of the English Lakes 15 1/2 square miles, is crossed by two ferries. The old one at Ferry Nab, where the lake is only 400 yards wide, is worked on a chain and conveys horses and vehicles, while the other, between Bowness and Ferry Hotel, is used for passengers only.
