Beatrix Potter 1866-1943
Raised in London but with Lancashire roots, rural family holidays such as to the Lakes or Scotland inspired Beatrix. London’s Frederick Warne & Co published her 23 Tales and more from 1902-30. The Pre-Raphaelites were among many artistic influences. Experts still refer to her scientific fungi paintings. In 1905 after editor and fiancé Norman Warne died, Beatrix finalised their dream purchase of Hill Top Farm in Sawrey. She settled in the village full time after marrying local solicitor William Heelis in 1913. A keen Lakes farmer and conservationist, she bred her prize-winning Herdwick sheep ideal for fell grazing. The Heelis’s 18 farms were left to The National Trust.
