Visitors to Keswick Museum will get the chance to dive into a new exhibition from May 18.

Dive into Derwentwater will provide a snapshot of the lake through the eyes of its different users - both past and present.

The exhibition seeks to look at the lake through the different user perspectives. Through the eyes of the local, visitor, naturalist, geologist, creative and sportsperson.

Becks Skinner, Keswick Museum manager said: “Thanks to funding from Arts Council England, we have been able to create this fantastic exhibition to showcase our lake’s story.

“Derwentwater has such a rich history with so many good stories shared with us, the hardest job has been what to leave out. This exhibition shouldn’t be missed.”

The collection will feature stories of famous Lake District personalities, like Beatrix Potter, through to current users of the lake such as photographer Stuart Holmes, celebrity spaniels Max, Paddy and Harry and the wild swimmers.

In the exhibition will be items of interest such as film memorabilia, including props used during the making of Swallows and Amazons; stunning photography by Stuart Holmes and personal journals recording people’s experiences on Derwentwater.

Part of the project utilises new technology through a touchscreen within the exhibition to play interviews with lake users and the development of a walking app, which enables the museum collection to connect with the landscape.

There will also be a series of free lunchtime talks relating to Derwentwater, in addition to a Schools Learning Programme.

The Exhibition will run until December 31 and has been made possible through the support of Arts Council England and Friends of Keswick Museum.
