This is a fine example of an Englishh village church. You must visit - near to the Daffodil Garden and the Gingerbread shop.

I was impressed to see the restored tower at St. Oswald's Church, which is Grade II listed at Historic England. Substantial restoration involving re-rendering and roof repairs has been done and the results look superb.

This is where Worsworth and his extended family are buried. We were a bit too early for the daffodils to be out, but the snow drops were in full bloom. Lovely poem and seating area by the stream.

Steeped in religious history, this is a must visit during a stay in Grasmere, a perfectly preserved building celebrating St Oswald.

Warm friendly feeling church, not very ornate or large. Typical local village church. Nice graveyard to wander around and the personalised paving stones in the daffodil garden interesting. Nice place to sit in warmer weather.

One of the main reasons to visit St. Oswald's is that the Wordsworth family graves are located in its churchyard. The cemetery is peaceful and quiet with the Wordsworth burial plots at the far end of the burial ground. People still leave mementos and flowers...More
