Jetty could make life easier in Windermere
A new floating passenger jetty in the Lake District is now in its final stages, which could prove useful for anyone staying at luxury hotels in Lake Windermere.
It is the first of its kind to be built on Windermere in the past 80 years and locals hope it will encourage more people to travel to the area by boat.
This in turn will help ease traffic congestion and lower emissions from vehicles, therefore keeping the calmness of the national park intact.
"The system used to secure it meant not having to drill into the lake bed as the blocks that anchor the jetty are pre-caste and gently lowered onto the bed," explained Sir John Kerr, a retired member of the Lake District National Park Authority.
Last weekend (June 25th and 26th) saw many guests of Lake District hotels heading to the Brockhole Visitor Centre to take part in a variety of activities inspired by bees.
