For many visitors, Beatrix Potter is the most interesting of the Lake District writers. The fact that so many of her stories have clear Lake District locations provides the basis for this book of short easy walks. Follow the adventures of Jeremy Fisher, Squirrel Nutkin, Mrs Tiggy Winkle, Peter Rabbit and many others, actually walking in their footsteps and visiting their lakes and rivers, their houses and gardens. The 15 walks included in this book are all suitable for young and not-so-young walkers. All have direct connections either to Beatrix Potter stories or to her life as a farmer and conservationist. There are maps, illustrations and clear directions plus parking and refreshment suggestions.
