Is the Lake District about to be part of Unesco?
The Grand Canyon, the Taj Mahal and Machu Picchu are all Unesco world heritage sites, but could the Lake district be too? The result of the national park’s application will be decided later in Krakow by the Unesco committee, which has had reports recommending the park to be put on the list. If the application is successful, the Lake District would be placed 31st in the list in UK and overseas territories.
