Hawkshead is an ancient township that has flourished since Norse times, belonging to Furness Abbey until the 12th Century. Hawkshead is still the same tiny village of higgledy-piggledy houses, archways, and squares beloved by William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter. Tourism is now the main industry of Hawkshead, with many pleasant inns, guest houses, teashops and gift shops.
