Rydal Cave is a large cavern on the north side of Loughrigg Fell, above Rydal Water. This famous lakeland beauty spot is actually man-made, as a result of slate quarrying. Take the stepping stones through the shallow lake at the entrance (you may even see some small fish!) into the drier floor space inside the cave. Remember to take your torch so you can see where you are stepping.

William Wordsworth lived at Rydal Mount for 37 years, until his death in 1850. While here, he wrote many of his poems and revised and improved much of his earlier works including the Prelude and the famous 'Daffodils' poem. He became England's most celebrated poet and in 1843 was made Poet Laureate to Queen Victoria.
