'Dora's Field' at the village of Rydal near the town of Ambleside in Cumbria's Lake District, is named after Wordsworth's daughter and is a mass of daffodils that were planted in her memory by Wordsworth, his wife and their gardener after Dora died from tuberculosis in 1847. She was devoted to her father William, and was a significant influence on his poetry.
The field was given to the National Trust by Gordon Wordsworth (William's Grandchild) in 1935 for the benefit of the public.
