Wordsworth Walks

We have developed a range of Grasmere-based walks that create a Wordsworthian framework through which participants can reflect on a number of aspects of their own lives. These walks use mini-lectures, activities, and a series of on-site readings of the projects’ key texts (‘Home at Grasmere’ and early versions of The Prelude) to enable participants to explore how Wordsworth’s ideas about location, vocation, vision and identity remain relevant today.

A particular focus of one set of these walks is on the values of Wordsworth’s ideas for organisations, including businesses, the public sector and volunteer groups. More than 750 people from a diverse range of local and global business and organisational environments have participated in them to date. Full details here.
