The Windermere Lake monster?
Bownessie is the name given to Windermere's very own lake monster.

Very little is known about Bownessie but he is thought to be very keen on Kendal Mint Cake so be careful not to get too close to Windermere lake with any in your pocket!

Bownessie now has an official website that is well worth a visit...

You can also find out about other mysterious creatures that live in and around Windermere such as the Killer Pike and the Tizzie Whizzie as well as keeping up with Bownessie sightings on our main website...

The KiLLER PiKE is out there so be careful!

Perhaps the most scary of our local creature the TiZZiEwIzzIE is part hedgehog and part bee. Be warned!
