In her later years she bought and ran a sheep farm in the English Lake District; she loved the landscape, and with the steady stream of royalties from her books she bought up large areas of local land. She had been a friend of one of the founders of the National Trust, and in her will, much of the property was left to the Trust-- cottages, 15 farms, 4000 acres of land-- to ensure that its beauty could remain unspoiled. Her legacy is now the Lake District National Park.

Beatrix Potter died in Sawrey, Lancashire[?] on December 22, 1943
