William Wordsworth wrote in his 1810 'Guide to the Lakes': "Rides may be taken in numerous directions [from Ambleside], and the interesting walks are inexhaustible; a few out of the main road may be particularized: … along the fell to the foot of Grasmere Lake, and thence round by the church of Grasmere Lake." Grasmere was also Wordsworth's home and resting place at the time.
