What Beatrix Potter took from Lakelands spectacular landscape in the form of inspiration for her world-famous childrens books, she gave back more than ten-fold as a conservationist. Her passion for the fells and the dales, and for the areas 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 UKs most popular National Park, this book explores the places Beatrix Potter loved the most and looks at her amazing legacy to the nation.
