Maps + Infographics

Writers and poets have always been inspired by nature. This is especially true in the UK, whose Lake District is behind the works of wordsmiths like Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter, or Coleridge. Located in the North West of England, within the county of Cumbria, its influence on literature is so high many of these writers are known as the Lake Poets — poets who lived in the Lake District at the turn of the 19th century.

But who were they and which lakes did they use for inspiration? The guys at Craig Manor Hotel decided to make it easier for us and created this beautiful infographic with information about the writers, their favorite lakes and the works inspired by them.
