His funeral service will take place at St Oswald's Church in Grasmere, the burial place of William Wordsworth and his family.

Dove Cottage and the Wordsworth Museum will be closed for the day.

Broadcaster Melvyn Bragg and former Culture Secretary Chris Smith were among those who paid tribute following his death.
