Grasmere is located at Grasmere Lake, home of Wordsworth and

his sister from 1799-1808. There is a Wordsworth Museum in

tribute to the famous writer and his circle of family

and friends. There are also manuscripts and other materials

from famous and not-so famous writers, as well at the museum.

Every year the Wordsworth Summer Conference is held which

looks at the works of Wordsworth and his contemporaries.

The Church of St. Oswold, built in the 13th-century, has the

graves of William Wordsworth, and his wife and sister. Another

attraction during August is the Grasmere Sports, held annually

since 1852 with fell-racing and Cumberland wrestling.
