Grasmere is one of the smaller lakes of the English Lake District, in the county of Cumbria. The lake is 1540 m long and 640 m wide, covering an area of 0.24 mi². It has a maximum depth of 21m and an elevation above sea level of 62 m. The lake is both fed and drained by the River Rothay, which flows through the village before entering the lake, and then exits downstream into nearby Rydal Water, beyond which it continues into Windermere.
Grasmere is probably the Cumbria’s most popular village, thanks to William Wordsworth (1770-1850). Today Grasmere is totally given over to the tourist industry, with plenty of gift shops, and places to eat and stay. Most of the buildings date from the 19th or early 20th Century, though the farms around Grasmere are much older. In 1850 William Wordsworth died while out walking. He and his wife Mary, who died 9 years later, have a simple tombstone in the churchyard of St Oswald’s Church, now one of the most visited literary shrines in the world.
