“The irregular outline of the narrow winding streets; the low archways; the picturesque frontages of the houses, with their many-paned windows and primitive chimneys – all these things give a visitor to Hawkshead a succession of quaint surprises” [Black’s Guide to the English Lakes – Ed. Gordon-Home, p35]
This intriguing glimpse peering down a wet street-corner was painted in 1895 during an early visit to the Lakes, Alfred must have been fascinated by the warren of little labyrinthine streets found in the small ancient market-town of Hawkshead. Wordsworth (himself once a schoolboy in Hawkshead) supposed that white should be a natural colour for rural residencies – due to the air of cleanliness and neatness
given off, but that it destroyed the shifts in distance when viewing a mountainous landscape.
