Gowbarrow Fell - William Wordsworth

William Wordsworth

It was at Gowbarrow that on the 15th April, 1802, Dorothy Wordsworth noticed daffodils growing on the west side of Gowbarrow. In her Journal she wrote: 'When we were in the woods beyond Gowbarrow park we saw a few daffodils close to the water side.' It was a record that later (in 1804) inspired William Wordsworth to write one of his most famous poems, Daffodils.
