Expert review of Wordsworth family graves

Wordsworth's final resting place.

Located a couple of miles northwest of Dove Cottage, the Wordsworth family grave in St Oswald's Church is a Mecca for Wordsworth fans.

The graves of William, Mary and Dorothy, plus several more of his children, fenced off but readily visible from the graveyard.

The Wordsworth Daffodil Garden behind the churchyard makes for a gentle stroll and supports a scheme to raise funds for the churchyard organised by the Friends of Grasmere.

Expert tips: 
Compared to the queues down the road at Dove Cottage, the graves provide a relatively peaceful counterpoint.
