Writing Places: Ian McMillan reads Coleridge's Frost at Midnight; Nether Stowey
"Coleridge Cottage glows with candlelight as the poet Ian McMillan reads Coleridge’s evocative poem ‘Frost at Midnight’ in front of the very place it is believed to have been written. The 17th Century cottage in Nether Stowey is now a Grade II listed building. After renting it in 1797 Samuel Taylor Coleridge wrote many of his greatest works and it was here that the Romantic movement truly began during visits by and lively debates with Wordsworth and other of the movements luminaries".
