"BUTTERMERE, a township and chapelry in the parish of Brigham, and ward of Allerdale-above-Derwent, in the county of Cumberland, 9 miles to the S.W. of Keswick, and 10 S.E. of Cockermouth. The district is mountainous, and abounds in romantic and magnificent scenery. The hamlet is picturesquely seated in a deep valley, encompassed by lofty mountains, which reflect themselves on the surface of the lakes below. To the S.E. of the village is the lake from which it takes its name, along the margin of which are the peaks called High Crag, High-Style, and Red Pike." [Description(s) from The National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland (1868) - Transcribed by Colin Hinson ©2003]
