Beatrix Potter-Despite not going to school Beatrix was an enthusiastic student of nature, teaching herself while painting and drawing the things she saw around her. Her childhood sketches reveal an early fascination for the subject which would continue throughout her life. She also painted many exquisite landscapes that show her pleasure in the countryside.

At Hill Top Farm (bought in 1905). Beatrix Potter was an extremely intelligent and accomplished lady, we didn't know that she was able to recite by heart the whole of the bible and all the works of Shakespeare.
