The Wordsworth Graves The acclaimed poet William Wordsworth described Grasmere as "The fairest place on Earth" With his family, Wordsworth became a regular worshipper at St Oswald's. He now rests in this peaceful churchyard alongside his wife Mary, their daughter Dora, their young children Catherine & Thomas, his sister Dorothy, and others close to them. They lie in the shade of a yew tree, one of eight planted by the poet in this churchyard. The Wordsworth Memorial, with portrait medallion by Thomas Woolner RA, is inside the church.
