If you think that Beatrix Potter was just an author, think again. The truth about this remarkable and highly talented lady is revealed in this exhibition. Told through her own words and images using material bequeathed by Beatrix Potter to the Armitt upon her death in 1943, the exhibition tells the story of her extraordinarily life. For more details, see the Armitt Web site here ...
A short walk from to the summit of Dodd, the fell upon which sits Dodd Wood, famous as the summer home of the Ospreys. Unfortunately no ospreys were spotted on this walk, but the views were outstanding. It is an easy walk, despite being 1,647 feet above sea level. The tracks are wide and well maintained, and the bonus is that at the start and end of the walk is an excellent tea shop.
Holme Fell, (sometimes spelled Holm Fell) sits beside the main A593 road between Ambleside and Coniston. This wonderful fell, the second lowest 'Wainwright', is not as popular as the other low fells in the district, however, those that take the walk to the top are rewarded with superb views. Our walk finishes by returnign via the shore of Yew Tree Tarn, which, unlike most of the tarns in the Lake District, is yet to reach its 100th birthday.
