• Description

    This memorial plaque is at the pavement level which accounts for the fact that I have been walking past it unaware of its existence for many a year. Raisley Calvert a youthful peer of Wordsworth was one of the poet's earliest benefactors. He died in his 20's leaving the poet nearly a thousand pounds, enough to enable Wordsworth to embark on his writerly life. The plaque is mounted on the Robin Hood pub in Penrith. Raisley is further remembered in the area as he has given his name to the Calvert Trust, a children's disability charity in nearby Keswick. William Wordsworth 1770 - 1850. Raisley Calvert 1773 - 1795.
