As an artist and storyteller Beatrix Potter is world-famous. Of no less importance is her work in protecting some of the finest examples of the Lake District's landscapes and in creating romantic interiors and a beautiful garden at Hill Top, the farmhouse she bought at Near Sawrey in 1905. Her picturesque house and the breathtaking scenery inspired many of Beatrix's stories and drawings. This book looks at the relationship between the Lake District and her work and includes numerous extracts from her letters and diaries, as well as atmospheric photographs from the Beatrix Potter archive.
Susan Denyer is World Heritage Adviser for the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS), Paris, and Secretary of ICOMOS-UK. During the years she worked for the National Trust she was closely involved with the restoration of the Hill Top interior, and helped to set up the Beatrix Potter Gallery in Hawkshead. She has lectured at the Universities of Bath and York, and has written widely on cultural landscapes, including the Lake District.
Will delight the many admirers of the artist and writer of children's books. Lakeland Echo A lovely book which has successfully knitted the many strands of Beatrix Potter's life into a delightful tale.
