THE JERWOOD CENTRE, GRASMERE, CUMBRIA Benson + Forsyth / Napper Architects Client: The Wordsworth Trust The Jerwood Centre houses the Wordsworth Trust's collection of books, manuscripts and fine art. It is a quiet yet dramatic building, with a wonderful tactile quality mainly achieved through the use of traditional slate and random rubble walling, which complements the contemporary form of its composition.
