Mike Carruthers from Kendal wrote to ITV about his memories of living in Windermere during the big freeze.
"I can remember walking across Lake Windermere when it was completely frozen over.
"I was aged seven and lived in Windermere, and I can also remember seeing a car drive across from Bowness Bay to Ferry Nab.
"You could see seagulls and ducks with their feet frozen in the ice after landing the night before and getting stuck as the surface froze again.
"This left dead birds six feet or more below the surface."
