Rydal Church 5/7

The Rash field next to the churchyard was bought by Wordsworth originally to build a house. The house never materialised. After his daughter Dora died in 1847, William went down to the field between Rydal Mount and the main road, and together with his wife, sister and gardener, planted hundreds of daffodils as a memorial to Dora.

A nice memorial to his daughter...
Brian Walbey: Indeed Frank.
I like the candles...
Brian Walbey: There had been some sort of church festival but I can't remember what it was.
I like the candles, too, and the stories you tell related to this church, Brian.
Brian Walbey: There had been some sort of church festival but I can't remember what it was. There are a couple more stories to come over the weekend.

A novel remembrance activity. That field must have looked special when all the daffodils stood in bloom.
Brian Walbey: I hope they still come out year on year after all this time.
A sad but sweet story of a family's floral memorial to Dora, Brian. I would love to see that window in colour.
Brian Walbey: Indeed but what a way to remember a loved one.
This series has been a fine history lesson Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, the weekend still to go on this one.

The field of daffodils are a treat in the spring. Thanks for this close up of the altar area.
Brian Walbey: I can imagine Alan.

I'm loving the B/W treatment of this series. Helps me concentrate on the forms/shapes. Beautiful light.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bonnie.
