    The Lake District & Beatrix Potter

    A travel blog entry by kyliep on Nov 01, 2014

    We woke to a cloudy day today. The main place we wanted to visit was Hill Top, which was Beatrix Potter's home when she first moved from London.

The damp loose scree wasn't the firmest of footings and having 4x4 traction kept me upright all the way to the bottom. A little over four hours start to finish. A bigger mountain next time I ...

    ... of one house gave a different message.

    The final memory of these few days in the Lake District was of our walk up the river Kent, in the estate of Levens Hall. The walk followed the track of a long defunct canal that ran alongside the river and whilst there was no water in the old canal, the river was quite spectacular. We stopped to look at the water crashing over a weir and then suddenly we saw a curved black shape in the foam. A ...
