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.

For more details, see the Armitt Web site here ...

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 returning via the shore of Yew Tree Tarn, which, unlike most of the tarns in the Lake District, is yet to reach its 100th birthday.
