Floods near Keswick in 2009
Considered by researchers to be the worst floods in the area for 600 years, the floods of November 2009 joined Bassenthwaite Lake and Derwentwater to form a single lake for the first time in over a century. The low lying land at the head of Bassenthwaite Lake was entirely flooded.
The lakes had originally formed as a single lake, but the alluvial fan from the River Greta extended across the valley dividing it in two. The December 2015 floods again re-joined the lakes.
