St. Mary, from Dora's Field

  • Description

    "From VisitCumbria: St Mary's is built on rocky ground, beneath Nab Scar, so there are no burials at Rydal. The Rash field next to the churchyard was bought by Wordsworth originally to build a house. The house never materialised. After his daughter Dora died in 1847, William went down to the field between Rydal Mount and the main road, and together with his wife, sister and gardener, planted hundreds of daffodils as a memorial to Dora. Dora's Field now belongs to the National Trust." Photo by Darrin Antrobus, 2009.
