Photographer's Note

The small white-washed Church of Newlands in the tiny hamlet of Littletown was rebuilt in 1843 in the style of an earlier 17th century church.

In May 1826 Wordsworth and his daughter were on a walking trip from Rydal Mount, and the poet was so impressed with the view of the Church through the trees, that he wrote his poem, 'To May'.

This area was made famous by Beatrix Potter as the home to Mrs Tiggy Winkle, the story of which was dedicated to Lucy Carr, daughter of the vicar of Newlands Church.
