ALL THE LATEST NEWS, VIEWS AND STORIES FROM AROUND YOUR LOCAL AREA:SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER WORDSWORTH HOUSE CHRONICLES THE RISE AND


FALL OF A GIANT ROCK WORDSWORTH HOUSE AND GARDEN

The Bowder Stone today, shrouded by trees


Take a walk or drive down Borrowdale past the Bowder Stone today and you could be forgiven for missing it. As Wordsworth House and Garden’s new exhibition reveals, this tree-shrouded boulder hasn’t always enjoyed such a low profile.


In the 18th century, only the most intrepid thrill-seekers ventured into the rarely explored Vale of Derwentwater to marvel at what naturalist George Smith decided was: “Much the largest stone in England.”


However, by the 19th century, thanks to the promotional efforts of eccentric local landowner Joseph Pocklington, a visit to the precariously balanced Bowder Stone had become an essential part of any Lake District tourist’s itinerary.


To celebrate the area’s recent elevation to a World Heritage Site, Objects of Celebrity #1 The Bowder Stone explores the rise and fall of this iconic rock through the eyes of those early travellers, including the artists, poets, novelists and diarists who helped spread its fame.


Alongside their drawings, photographs and writings, the exhibition includes an oil painting by celebrated landscape

There is also a replica of the stone made out of cake, a


modern stereographic image visitors can view with 3D glasses – and the chance to see how the Bowder Stone might look today if the National Trust hadn’t taken it into its care in 1910.


After exploring this intriguing exhibition, visitors can head into Borrowdale to step inside the Trust’s Time Machine temporary installation at the old climbers’ hut and view the past centuries from the perspective of the stone itself.


Those who are feeling particularly brave can even hunker down and shake hands beneath it for luck in the traditional way.


Objects of Celebrity #1 The Bowder Stone is open from 11.00am to 4.00pm every day except Friday, until Sunday 29th October, and entry is free with admission to Wordsworth House and Garden.


The Time Machine at the Bowder Stone runs from Saturday 23rd September to Sunday 29th October and entry is free. Find out more at http://bit.ly/bowderstone.

There is in Lewis’s playing a strong physicality, a firm connection between his deep thinking about the music and his articulation of it. He knows and can define its character, and can show how its rhythmic, harmonic and melodic components coalesce. Geoffrey Norris, The Daily Telegraph
