Bowness-on-Windermere is a small but busy town in Cumbria.
The reason for the town's popularity is its position, on the shore of the lovely Windermere in the Lake District.
Bowness Pier is the embarkation point for a variety of crusises on Windermere, which at 10 miles long is the largest lake in England.
A particularly popular attraction here is "The World of Beatrix Potter", devoted to characters such as Peter Rabbit, Mrs Tiggy Winkle and the Tailor of Gloucester.
St. Martin's Church was consecrated in 1483, on a still earlier site, but was largely rebuilt in the Victorian period. It has stained glass which came from Cartmel Priory.
