Beatrix Potter 1866-1943
Raised in London but with Lancashire roots, holidays such as to the Lake District and Scotland inspired her. The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood were among artistic influences. Experts still refer to her scientific fungi paintings. From 1902-30 Frederick Warne & Co published 23 Tales and other works.In 1905, after her editor and fiancé Norman Warne died, Beatrix finalised their dream purchase of Hill Top Farm at Near Sawrey. She settled there after marrying local solicitor William Heelis in 1913. A Lakes farmer and conservationist, Beatrix was a breeder of prize-winning Herdwick sheep ideal for fell grazing nearby. The 18 Heelis farms were left to The National Trust.
