Nearly 2000 feet above the valley of Borrowdale in the English Lake District National Park on a stormy November day, a shaft of sunlight reveals the bright greens of the valley pastures. All the valley fields are divided by dry stone walls, which are typical of the area and built without mortar.  Helping to add to the drama are wisps of low cloud spilling through the mountain cols from one valley to the next. Noted for its changeable weather, scenes like this made the Lake District a popular haunt for poets and artists seeking inspiration. The great English poet William Wordsworth wrote many poems based on his experiences of Borrowdale in the late 1700's and early 1800's and today his former homes are visited by many thousands of visitors.
