200 Protestors say no to houseboats on Grasmere


This morning (January 4th), 200 hardy souls took to the shore of Grasmere to protest at plans to berth holiday houseboats on the edge of the picturesque lake.

A spokesperson said:

"We stand firm together in the face of this abhorrent abuse of our UNESCO world heritage, National Park.
"Together we can stop the invasion of Houseboats set to blight our lake and pristine views for the sole purpose of commercial gain for the already wealthy, landed, Lowthers.

"If we do not, the land we love will be forever changed, never the same for the generations who should be able to enjoy the peace and serenity as we have.

"We will never stop fighting."

  • Grasmere is one of the smaller lakes of the English Lake District, in the county of Cumbria. It gives its name to the village of Grasmere, famously associated with the poet William Wordsworth, which lies immediately to the north of the lake.
