Grasmere: A History in 55 ½ Buildings presents a unique illustrated history of Grasmere village and vale through a selection of its buildings, from old mills and smithys with their foundations in the Middle Ages, to twenty-first century affordable housing schemes. Through the story of each building, its owners and inhabitants, a social history of the village unfolds, as Grasmere evolves from a remote yet prosperous centre of rural industries to a tourist hotspot. You will read about local characters and families alongside famous visitors and famous Grasmere residents – including William Wordsworth and his family – all of whom shaped Grasmere as it is today. An introductory essay provides an indispensable overview of the history of Grasmere and its occupants from its earliest settlement to the present day.

Written collaboratively by Grasmere History Group, and featuring images from the Wordsworth Trust archives and from private collections, this is an essential book for anyone interested in Lakeland history.
