Lowes Water 43.a
Artist: Smith, I.
This print depicts the lake of Loweswater in Cumbria, Northern England. It is one of the smaller of the lakes which make up an area known as the ‘Lake District’, known ofr its picturesque and beautiful landscape, and is a mile in length, half a mile in width and approximately 60 feet deep. It drains in the Crummock Water, to which it was once joined. W. F. Topham in his book ‘The Lakes of England’, published in 1869, comments that, “This pleasing little lake does not exceed a mile in length, and about a quarter of a mile in breadth. The finest scenery is at its foot, where it falls into Crummock Water; and its general character is that of sweet and placid retirement”.
