Staff and students from the English and Creative Writing departments have enjoyed several trips in recent months.

Journeying along beautiful scenic roads to the Lake District we visited Wordsworth’s Dove Cottage in Grasmere where we were given a fascinating tour and stimulating lecture on the radical writing and tempestuous friendship of Wordsworth and Coleridge.

Following a tour around the Cottage and accompanying exhibition, we enjoyed an afternoon in the beautiful and quaint village whilst indulging in the gorgeous Grasmere gingerbread.
