Walking with Beatrix Potter

Author(s): Norman Buckley


For many visitors, especially young ones, Beatrix Potter is the most interesting of the many Lake District writers, and the fact that so many of her stories have clear Lake District locations is here used as the basis of a series of short easy walks. For the first time, it is now possible to follow the adventures of Jeremy Fisher, of Squirrel Nutkin, of Mrs Tiggy Winkle, and of course of Peter Rabbit and many others, actually walking in their footsteps and visiting their lakes and rivers, their houses and gardens. Fifteen walks in the Lake District, all suitable for the young (as well as for the comparatively old) and all with direct connections either to Beatrix Potter's stories or to her life as a farmer and conservationist, are presented with maps, illustrations and easy to follow directions that include parking and refreshment suggestions, and of course full details of the particular interest and relationship that each walk has to the work of one of the world's best loved story tellers.
