Grasmere Religious Building/Site/Shrine

William Wordsworth, his wife Mary, his sister Dorothy, and four of his children are buried in the churchyard of this historical church with a curious split interior on the River Rothay. The poet planted eight of the yew trees here, including the one under which he was interred. As you leave the churchyard, stop at the Gingerbread Shop, in a tiny cottage, for a special local treat.
