Wordsworth Memorial

Sullart St

Opposite Wordsworth House is this bronze bust of the poet William Wordsworth, unveiled on 7 April 1970, the bicentenery of Williamís birth, by his great-great-grandson. As part of the same celebrations, 27000 daffodils were planted on open spaces and approaches to the town.

A drinking fountain with a bronze figure was erected in 1896 in Harris Park by Canon Rawnsley in memory of Dorothy and William Wordsworth. It was the focus of a daffodil ceremony held on the poetís bicentenery in 1970.

Recently it was stolen, then recovered and placed near Williamís statue.
