Lake District Protection Society

Our Aim

We aim to preserve and protect this stunning landscape for habitats, wildlife, nature, and the environment.

Our ambition will be achieved through the acquisition of key areas of land throughout the Lake District National Park which will then be given back to mother nature for her to repair, restore and thrive.

To deliver our strategy we will seek to secure life-long partnerships with individuals, groups, communities, companies, and other organisations that feel as fiercely passionate about the preservation of this wilderness as we do here at The Lake District Protection Society.

We would love for you to join us on this incredible journey.

Our Inspiration

The inspiration for setting up The Lake District Protection Society has been the great English writer, illustrator, natural scientist, and conservationist, Beatrix Potter. Many are surprised to hear that Beatrix Potter was a great entrepreneur who loved the natural world and felt uncomfortable with urban life and culture. After many visits to the Lake Districtas a child, Beatrix decided to use the money from the sale of her early books to buy her first farm – ‘Hill Top’ based in Near Sawrey, near Hawkshead in 1905.

Ms. Potter was the de facto estate manager for the Trust for seven years, she observed key issues in the Lake District and worked to address may with afforestation and preservation of intact grazing lands, quarries, and timber on the farms. When Beatrix Potter died in 1943, she left seventeen farms, eight cottages, over 4,000 acres of land, her flocks of Herdwick sheep, and hard copies of her booksto the National Trust.

We hope you can see why Beatrix Potter has been our inspiration for setting up the Lake District Protection Society and to continue her incredible work.
