View by William Green, of Crummock Water and Buttermere in Cumbria, Northern England. The two lakes lie with Loweswater in the north west of the Lake District. They are separated by a small strip of meadowland and it is thought that they were once joined together. Crummock means crooked or bent and Buttermere means the lake by the dairy pastures. Crummock is the larger of the two lakes being two and a half miles in length and three quarters of a mile in width, Buttermere stands at one and a half miles in length and three quarters of a mile in width.
