The Jerwood Centre, Grasmere, in the Lake District National Park, UK, 14 April, 2006

The Wordsworth Trust's research centre was built from local slate and opened (by Nobel Laureate Seamus Heaney) in 2005, a short distance from Dove Cottage, the home of Romantic poet William Wordsworth between 1799-1808. As one would expect, it houses ~60,000 manuscripts and other documents in a controlled climate. I like the fact that scholars will need to visit the very environment which inspired Wordsworth in order to study his work.

Incidentally, I searched the village and surrounding area for daffodils, as referenced in Wordsworth's most famous poem, but could only find one, bedraggled in a ditch behind the Centre. It's tempting to blame souvenir-hunters.
