The History of Storrs Hall
Storrs Hall was built in the 1790s by the Yorkshire landowner Sir John Legard. It sits on the shores of Lake Windermere, in the heart of the Lake District, one of the most scenic and peaceful regions of the British Isles. This magnificent stretch of glittering water, bays and islands has stirred some of the masters of lyrical English language. Lakeland poets, William Wordsworth and Robert Southey, were among the guests in the Hall’s heyday of private ownership and found inspiration among the prevailing tranquillity.
