Wordsworth found inspiration at Hawkshead for his early poetry. From 1779 to 1787, he went to the Old Grammar School founded in 1585 by Dr. Edwin Sandsy of the Graythwaite family. A future Bishop of Worcester and Archbishop of York, Sandsy spent time in prison for his support of Lady Jane Grey for queen. The school is now a museum and library. Original desks include one on which Wordsworth carved his name. An old sundial is set into the wall above the school's door in honour of the Archbishop.
