Lakes are transient features on the earth's surface and generally disappear in a relatively short period of geologic time by a combination of processes (e.g., erosion of an outlet or climatic changes that bring drier conditions).
The significant input sources are precipitation onto the lake; runoff carried by streams and channels from the lake's catchment area; groundwater channels and aquifers; and artificial sources from outside the catchment area.
A lake may be infilled with deposited sediment, and gradually, the lake becomes a wetland, such as a swamp or marsh.
The Lakes, as the region is also called, were made famous during the early 19th century by the poetry and writings of William Wordsworth and the LakePoets.
The Lake District is intimately associated with English literature in the 18th and 19th centuries.
In the churchyard of Grasmere the poet and his wife lie buried, and very near to them are the remains of Hartley Coleridge (son of the poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge), who himself lived for many years in Keswick, Ambleside and Grasmere.
