As part of a Heritage Day the bell tower at All Saints Church was open
to the public...for those agile enough to climb the 44 stone steps up
Cockermouth has the unique advantage of being the birthplace of William
Wordsworth on 7 April 1770. He was also christened at All Saints Church
in Cockermouth on 18 January 1772 along with his younger sister Dorothy,
while they were living in Wordsworth House.
