Stone handaxe
THIS small handaxe is one of the most beautiful in the British Museum. It is made from quartz with attractive amethyst banding, a difficult material from which to make tools because it is extremely hard. The toolmaker would have had to hit with considerable force and accuracy to remove flakes. Such a high degree of difficulty makes the thin, symmetrical shape of this piece a masterpiece of the toolmakers’ art.

Hawkshead Hall Campsite, Hawkshead, Ambleside, Cumbria

Hawkshead Hall Campsite, Hawkshead, Ambleside, CumbriaIn a small and very compact space the Lake District scenery varies from the savage to the serene, with wilderness giving way to the quaint. The area immediately around Hawkshead, and Hawkshead Hall Campsite, falls fair and square on to the serene and quaint side - the green and extremely cute Lake District of Beatrix Potter, as opposed to the high hills ofWainwright.

Two spacious, open fields comprise the campsite, whose facilities are enthusiastically maintained, and whose views are smooth and free from any rocky heights that might obscure the sun and spoil your tan.Those high hills also bring rain, and it is said that this part of the Lake District is much drier than the mountainous lands to the north.The walking here is gentle, and Hawkshead village is a lovely half-mile stroll along a traffic-free track. The village - and its huge clothes shop - besides having all sorts of historical links with Lakelands literate nobility, is also agreeably charming. This is the Lake District for the family holiday, and for those in need of total mind or body relaxation... Or both.

COOL FACTOR Easy-going site in gentle scenery.

WHO'S IN? Tents, campervans, caravans, dogs - yes. Big groups, lone backpackers - no (families and couples only).

ON SITE The site is spread over 2 very large fields, and even at full capacity (150 pitches) there's plenty of room. A limited number of electric hook-ups are available. The facilities (toilets, 6 free showers, washing-up sinks) are housed in a clean Portakabin in the farmyard. No campfires.
