We came to the village, with just the intention of a stroll, but found ourselves drawn to the church yard. Beautiful church, the setting seemed most appropriate for the final resting place of William Wordsworth. Peaceful and beautiful, worth visiting whatever the weather.

On our visit the floor was covered with grasses making it slippy in places but certainly different. Quite a small but cosy little church.

The church has just had a grant to restore it. Its new white tower looks great in the landscape. Would have liked to learn more about St Oswald.

This church like many other ones has a cemetery out the back and has the famous poet William Wordsworth grave and his family members also there. It is a very old church and is free to enter
