The Trust includes Dove Cottage, the legendary home of Willian and Dorothy Wordsworth; the Wordsworth Museum, which specializes in Cumbrian art, history, and culture; and the Jerwood Centre, a research library that is home to the vast majority of the Wordsworth’s surviving manuscripts and a world-class collection of Romantic-era books, paintings and drawings.
