Keswick is the main town in the northern area of the Lake District and is situated at the top end of Derwent Water, lying on the south side of the main road A66 from the M6.

The River Greta passes through Keswick to meet the River Derwent which links with Bassenthwaite Lake further north and Derwent Water with its wooded islands.

Keswick was once a small wool-market town. The town began to grow and prosper in the 16th Century with the mining industry. Graphite was mined in Borrowdale, close by, which also resulted in a pencil factory which is known as the Cumberland Pencil Museum. Pencils are still made here but with imported materials.
