Wonderful Walker's memorial, Seathwaite

Wonderful Walker's memorial, Seathwaite

Poet William Wordsworth immortalised Rev. Robert Walker as 'Wonderful Walker'. Outside the door of Seathwaite's peaceful church is a stone used by Walker to clip sheep. The sundial set upon the stone is of indeterminate age. Note that there are 2 Seathwaites - this is the one in the Duddon Valley!
