Did you know the Buttermere Lake is located near Allerdale? The name of the lake has two possible origins. One suggestion is that the name comes from the Old English language words, butere mere which means lake situated beside the dairy fields. The name origin also indicates that the surrounding are was fertile. Another suggestion is that the name comes from the Old Norse language word, Buthar, a male personal name. This would mean that the lake is named Buthar’s mere meaning Buthar’s lake. Certainly there is evidence of a local chieftain who lived in the area during the 11th century.
The National Trust
The lake forms part of the famous Lake District and is owned and maintained by the National Trust. The lake itself is one and a half miles long, a quarter of a mile wide and is 75 foot in depth. It is beautifully located being surrounded by fells and pretty villages.
During the Norman period, the local chieftain Buthar managed a resistance campaign against William the Conqueror’s Norman invaders, fighting a guerilla style war by ambushing Norman patrols, stealing supplies. Buthar’s battles have provided the inspiration for folk tales as well as authors of novels, including Rosemary Sutcliff whose book Shield Ring describes the rebels lead by Buthar and their last battle against the Norman army.
