Field Studies Council – Lakes and Literature Residential – October 2024

Follow in the footsteps of Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth as you explore the landscape that inspired them both.

Our Lakes and Literature residential will take you on a journey of discovery throughout this stunning landscape.

We will visit key locations within the Lake District to help understand what it is about this landscape that is so appealing to writers and poets. Locations such as, Hill Top, the farmhouse that was the source of inspiration for writer Beatrix Potter and Dove Cottage, the former home of poet William Wordsworth and his sister Dorothy Wordsworth.

This residential is perfect for those aged 16-18 with an interest in English Literature but also have a sense of adventure. We’ll be taking advantage of what the Lake District has to offer with days of hiking, ghyll scrambling and time on Castle Head’s high ropes course.

If this residential course date and location don’t suit you, we run similar residentials throughout the year at our field centres across the UK.
