Jepson Field Book volume 13 page 172
Keswick to Grasmere [September 18, 1905]  All government property, such as post boxes, etc., has the legend V.R. or more recently made E.R. on it. It looks a bit odd to see in a government telegraph pole: Victoria Regina. Post no bills." The coach ride from Keswick to Ambelside is a fine one. Our coach had 23 passengers, not to speak of luggage. And only 4 horses to pull it over the steep hills! And yet Englishmen prohibit the working of dogs as on the continent, because it is inhuman!!! All people have their inconsistencies.    ::::::::: [Keswick to Grasmere] September 18, 1905  the quaintest little church I ever saw. It is almost like a play church, it is so small; but it has its chancel, choir, nave, baptismal font; its little stained=glass windows, set in the very thick walls (2 1/2 feet thick or more) and heavy beams above, which I could touch with my hand. It is mentioned in a poem by Wordsworth and also by Coleridge. Visited Wordsworth grave in the fine old Grasmere church yard; Dove Cottage where he lived in his young married days; passed Coleridge's cottage; Rydal Mount, Wordsworth's later home; then on past Lake Grasmere, Rydal Water to Ambelside. Took steamer and came to Lake Side for the night.
