Keswick
The Essential
This typical lakeland town of medieval origin was the home of Coleridge and Southey, who once shared the splendid residence of Greta Hall (now a B&B). Thanks to the graphite mined at Borrowdale since the mid-16C, Keswick has the distinction of having been the site of the world's first pencil factory (1832).
