Windermere is Twinned With: Diessen am Ammersee (Southern Bavaria, Germany)

Situated in close proximity to and getting its name from the largest inland lake in England, the little town of Windermere doesn't in fact touch the edge of the lake, as it is approximately a half a mile away, though its neighbouring Bowness-on-Windermere does.

The name "Windermere" is apparently a mix of Old English and Old Swedish, the first listed mention of it in 1396 as "Wynandermer", the 1st section of the name is assumed to refer to a personal name Vinandr (from Old Swedish), and the next part "mere", which means a lake or pool (Old English). Though the village did not be called this name until centuries later.

Windermere - Main RoadCrazy as it seems, the Kendal and Windermere Railway were mostly responsible for naming the town, since it was beforehand a settlement named Birthwaite, at the time the rail service arrived in the location in the eighteen forties, the train company decided to call it after the well known lake rather than the village itself, and thus it was called "Windermere".

The town and parish in these modern times has got a populace of roughly 8,000 occupants and is found in the Cumbrian South Lakeland District, the town today has just about become joined with the neighbouring Bowness, despite the fact that they continue to be 2 defined towns boasting different centers. The region is vast for leisure and travel and you will find a variety of attractions and museums, with the legendary lake remaining principal draw.
