Photographer's Note

Grasmere is probably the Cumbria's most popular village, thanks to William Wordsworth (1770-1850). Unfortunately, today Grasmere is totally given over to the tourist industry, with plenty of gift shops, and places to eat and stay. Most of the buildings date from the 19th or early 20th Century. The Church dates from the 13th Century.

William and his sister Dorothy moved into Grasmere in 1799.

In 1850 William died while out walking. He and his wife Maryin the churchyard of St Oswald's Church, now have a tombstone in the churchyard and is one of the most visited literary shrines in the world. The Church stands on the bank of the River Rothay, along whose banks pleasant walks can be made.

The photo is a little dark but I took it because of the fantastic colours of the trees.
