Special Announcement: May 2015
We are very sorry to announce that all available space has now been used up in our Daffodil Garden, and we are no longer able to accept any further applications for stones. The information below is for reference use only, and is no longer up-to-date.
Have Your Name Carved in Stone
The Friends of Grasmere developed the Wordsworth Daffodil Garden in 2003, and since then the public has participated by way of the sponsorship of benches, inscribed paving stones, shrubs and daffodils.
The Final Batch of Stones
The final batch of stones will be laid in this inspirational place, alongside the River Rothay, below the Wordsworth family graves.
For a donation of £250, your name, or that of a loved one, will be carved in stone and laid in this unique setting.
