Dorothy Wordsworth was more than William’s sister. She was a writer, friend, collaborator, aunt, pioneering walker, local philanthropist, inspiring gardener, and – perhaps most famously – author of the Grasmere Journal.

She was an extraordinary yet relatable woman: a writer, sister, and friend whose work and life remains relevant today.
