‘This was going to be a Poet’s Day.
We would cycle alongside Ullswater, then up and over Kirkstone Pass, dropping into Ambleside, and out into Great Langdale. Then another up and over to Wordsworth’s Grasmere.
Bears were going to be first though, in the churchyard of the small village of Dacre, tucked away in the north-easterly corner of the National Park.’
