View of Ennerdale Bridge and Chapel in Cumbria, Northern England. The Village of Ennerdale is situated on Ennerdale Lake with the River Ehen flowing nearby from which the local names are derived. A chapel has stood on this site on the banks of the river since 1534. The chapel was rebuilt in 1857 through subscription and became St Mary’s Church. Worsworth wrote of the chapel in a sonnet,
“In our churchyard
Is neither epitaph nor monument,
Tombstone nor name- only the turf we tread
And a few natural graves”
