Martin Mere

Martin Mere is a historically significant site in Lancashire, England. It was originally a large lake, but was drained and it is managed as a wetland habitat and bird sanctuary.

According to one local legend, Lancelot was raised or cared for by a mermaid living in Martin Mere. The mermaid is said to have had a nurturing and protective role in his upbringing.
