More About This Title Beatrix Potter's Lake District
What Beatrix Potter took from Lakeland’s spectacular landscape in the form of inspiration for her world-famous children’s books, she gave back more than tenfold as a conservationist. Her passion for the fells and the dales, and for the area’s cultural heritage, prompted her to buy up thousands of acres of farmland. And, with typical foresight and wisdom, having nurtured that land for decades, she left most of it to the National Trust. From family holidays on the shores of Windermere and Derwentwater to the farms spread throughout what is now the UK’s most popular National Park, this book explores the places Beatrix Potter loved the most and looks at her amazing legacy to the nation.
