High Yewdale Farm in Cumbria

There is huge affection, both locally and nationally, for this small family run fell farm and the beautiful environment in which it is located.

It is an affection that we thought was shared by the National Trust, particularly as this was the farm that the National Trust selected for a visit by Her Majesty the Queen when she last came to Coniston in 1985;

It would be wrong not to give friends of the farm, as well as National Trust members, the opportunity to retain this way of life as Beatrix Potter intended.

It is very encouraging to see that the National Trust has changed its position on Stonehenge (see Save and is now actually fighting hard to ensure Stonehenge gets the future it deserves. They are to be congratulated on this and similar consideration should now be given to Beatrix Potter's bequest..
