Lakes parish, once in
Dora's Field -- Rydal -- Lakes -- Cumbria / -- 5.12.2005
Plot of land bought by William Wordsworth.
Intended as a site for a house for his daughter Dora? OR intended for a house for himself if ever he ceased renting, which he never did, and given to Dora for her pony?
Its proper name is the Rash Field, on account of the rushes that grew there.
