For GeoWeek 2022 we will be highlighting some of the poet William Wordsworth’s writing on mountains and geology in our activities taking place each day at Wordsworth Grasmere.
Discover Wordsworth’s Guide to the Lakes on Gallery Tours, see nature through fresh eyes whilst Sketching, and try our geology-themed writing prompts at Loose Leaf Poetry. In a Behind the Scenes tour of the Jerwood Centre, our state-of-the-art library and archive, there will be a display exploring the connections between Wordsworth and locally born geologist Jonathan Otley. Different activities take place each day and are included with admission; take a look at the schedule below to find out what’s on when you visit.
