Excursion to Wordsworthshire



In 1844, the Johnson family travelled through the Lake District on holiday.
Their journal of the tour, with its beautiful illustrations has now been published for the first time by The Wordsworth Trust.

The illustrated record of their 1844 sojourn in the Lake District, now in the Wordsworth Trust Collection, contains an engaging account of their adventures, often enriched  by their use of Wordsworth's own Guide to the Lakes, and enlivened by unique glimpses of the poet himself and members of his family.

Their lively illustrations of people and places bring this wonderful book to life.
