Photographer's Note

Apart from the fact that this was taken in Hawkshead, and Wordsworth is reputed to have wandered lonely as a cloud around the shores of Ullswater, and not forgetting for a moment that someone as erudite as he is unlikely to have used such a turn of phrase, William Wordsworth may well have nipped in here for a quick 'arf or two.

He certainly lodged in the village and went to the grammar school there.

Of course, he is more well known for having lived in Dove Cottage in Grasmere, or in nearby Rydal, at Rydal Mount, as John's posts attest.
