Grasmere is the most central village in the Lake District. Nestling between Keswick and Ambleside, it is surrounded by the most breathtaking countryside. Despite its popularity, Grasmere has retained its rural charm and beauty. Many well known writers and poets have made Grasmere their home , no doubt inspired by the ever changing and stunning scenery. William Wordsworth spent much of his life here, and now lies buried in the local historic churchyard alongside his beloved sister, Dorothy. The following photographs were taken on a tranquil (and damp!) autumn afternoon in Grasmere.
