Many visitors flock to the churchyard every day to look upon the simple grave of the Lake District’s most famous poet. William Wordsworth was born on 7 April, in Cockermouth, in Cumbria, northwest England. Wordsworth spent his early years in his beloved Lake District often with his sister, Dorothy.
