Webcams, along with weather stations, are a potentially useful source of information about the weather now in the Lake District and these are some of the ones we're currently aware of. If you know of any others then please let us know, especially if they fill in gaps in the map.
One word of warning however: it's not unusual for them to stop producing new images. However most of them are time stamped so it's easy enough to check that the image is up to date.
Some, which show video rather than still images, still rely on Flash rather than HTML5 for the display of the video so you may find you can't use those if you're using an up to date browser. Sadly there's not a lot we can do about that but hopefully they will be upgraded to support the latest browser standards eventually.
This is where they are all located. You can click on their icon to get to their details quickly.
Here's details of each webcam. Note that the images you see below and on the map are samples, mainly taken on nice days. Click on any of them to see the latest available version.
