A Little of Keswick’s History

Keswick’s recorded history dates back to middle ages, but the Stone Age settlement at Castlerigg tells us communities have been living around the town for some 4000 years. It is not known what this prehistoric site was originally intended for, but if you’re booking a Keswick grew in prosperity during the reign of Elizabeth I, who was keen to draw on the town’s natural resources to strengthen her warships. For years, the area was mined for its considerable deposits of copper, its slate, and most notably, its graphite. The latter was purportedly discovered by a shepherd in Seathwaite and led to the manufacture of what residents claim was the world’s first pencil. Visit the Cumberland Pencil Museum just off the A66 to learn about the history of pencil making from its ‘sheepish’ beginnings to present day.
Keswick was a popular spot with romantic Lake Poets Wordsworth, Coleridge and Southey and together they catalogued the beauty of the Borrowdale Valley for readers across the world.

Derwentwater is sublime. Just a short stroll from the town centre, the 8 miles around the lake make a serene walk; the peak of Cat Bells rises dramatically from the shore. The view from Friar’s Crag to the east of the lake was described by Ruskin as one of the most beautiful scenes in Europe.
Keswick is home to some of the Lake District’s best loved walks: from the gentler slopes of Cat Bells to the rugged crags of Blencathra, you will easily find a route to suit you. For thrill-seekers, Keswick is an ideal location for outdoor adventures; the area boasts some of the best climbing routes in the country and Keswick’s dramatic landscape means mountain-biking off-road here can be a white-knuckle ride.
