£1m spent on poet’s home well worth it! [UK]:
“We invested nearly £1 million in recreating the childhood home of William Wordsworth, but we wanted the whole of Cockermouth to benefit from the investment.”


Hmm.

“We know that William’s father John Wordsworth had a set of prints on the walls so we decided to make the contents of the house reflect what he would have had,” said Kate.

“As well as sourcing suitable prints, we have had to have the frames made specially with the correct style of mouldings.”

There are also some new furnishings which have beenadded over the winter, including specially woven bedspreads and curtains.

The process of recreating the house has not yet been completed.


But when they're done, they'll use the place as an incubator for many, many little Wordsworths who are acutely aware of the correct style of mouldings.
