Whilst in the Lake District I took the opportunity to visit the Hawkshead Grammar School Museum, the museum is located in the Old Grammar School building in the village of Hawkshead, Cumbria, and houses a unique collection of historic artefacts relating to the ancient School, some of which date back to the sixteenth century. Famous attendees of the school include William Wordsworth, whose name has been carved into a desk – though impossible to say wether or not he did the carving.
The museum is definitely worth a visit, the staff are incredibly helpful and informative and the desks alone provide a wealth of artistic interest for any photographer.
The museum is bright and open despite the deceptively small appearance of the building and visitors are given almost free reign to explore.
The museum is open 1st April – 31st September, 10:30 am – 1pm and then 1:30pm-5pm.
