Nab Scar, Great Rigg and Scandal Fell rise above the Cumbrian town of Ambleside in the heart of the Lake District. English poet William Wordsworth (1770-1850) made his home on the shores of Rydal Water, about two miles north of Ambleside. His work was greatly inspired by the natural beauty of the local landscape. Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834) and Robert Southey (1774-1843) also made the Lake District their home at the beginning of the 19th century.
