Scrump Challenge - Daffodils at Windermere (27) RE: Challenge - Daffodils at Windermere 21 Mar 07


<pedant>

I believe that should read "...on the banks of Windermere".

When I were a lad, I were told it was incorrect to refer to "Lake Windermere", because the "mere" part of the name means "lake". It would be equivalent to referring to "Mount Ben Nevis" in Scotland.

However, there is a town called Windermere, on the shore of Windermere, which does cause confusion at times... :-)
