England 2: North Country and the Lake District

England  2: North Country and the Lake District

This program will delight lovers of nature, history and literature. In the North Country, we visit Beamish, the North of England Open Air Museum, where the past comes to life. This sprawling complex, set on over 300 acres of beautiful countryside, vividly recreates life in the North of England in the early 1800s and 1900s. Next, Yorkshire Dales National Park, which in 1954 was designated a national park in recognition of its picturesque scenery, wildlife habitats, and rich cultural heritage; then the Castles of the Yorkshire Dales, which include such castles as the Barnard Castle, Castle at Richmond, and Skipton Castle, one of the most complete and best preserved medieval castles in England. Also we see Hadrian's Wall, an important monument built by the Romans in Britain and spanning over 2000 years of history. The Lake District we learn is situated in England's northwest corner; it is famous for 16 major lakes divided by valleys and mountains and is an inspiration for writers, poets, and artists. Here we visit Dove Cottage in Grasmere, the home of William Wordsworth from 1799 - 1808, where he wrote much of his poetry, and his sister, Dorothy, kept her famous journals. In the heart of the Lake District is Rydal Mount, this home to William Wordsworth and his wife from 1813 - 1850 also helps keeps his memory alive. Lastly, we visit the Beatrix Potter Gallery, which offers an exhibit of the legendary Lake District resident Beatrix Potter's original drawings and illustrations. 02/09DE IJSCA 30 min.
