Abstract

The Lake poets were a sub-set of the 18th to 19th century Romantic poets that lived in, and were inspired by, the English Lake District. For example, William Wordsworth’s poem ‘Yew trees’ makes reference to four Yew trees located in the Lake District’s Borrowdale valley. In this paper, we present our research into the design (and formative evaluation) of Locative Media Experiences (LMEs) that may facilitate visitors to the Lake District in engaging both with the landscape and with the poetry itself.
