Celebrations are being planned to mark the 200th anniversary of William Wordsworth's new life in Ambleside.
March sees the bi-centenary of his move from Grasmere to live at Rydal Mount, near Ambleside, and to start work in the town as a civil servant.
The Old Stamp House where he was based is now a restaurant, Stampers, and to mark the bicentenary the owners are putting on a month of Wordsworth-inspired dishes on their menu.
They have been researched by co-owner Helen Abel, using Dorothy's Journals, and created by her partner chef, Dave Hallows. They discovered that the Wordsworth family's favourite meals were savoury pies, and Dave, an award-winning party cook, has been adapting some of his popular creations.
The police have charged the son of a woman who was killed in the Lake District with murder. 77 year old Jane Marie Theresa Archbold died after being assaulted at her home at Outgate near Ambleside on Tuesday night.
Robert Adam Pierre Archbold, who's 48 and also lived at Outgate, will appear at Furness District Magistrates court tomorrow.
