The garden that Wordsworth planned

  • Description

    "Visitors know that William Wordsworth lived here for most of his life, that he wrote many of his greatest poems when he was living here. But not all realise that he began the planning – and the planting – of the glorious garden here which has never looked so lovely.....No formal planting schemes here. Wordsworth wanted nature to lead the way, to “defend us from the tyranny of trimness and neatness”. Sketches of the garden drawn in the year he died, and only discovered recently, have helped us to continue our work – his work – so that the garden is still very similar to how it was in Wordsworth’s day...."
