Beatrix Potter’s Collector’s Cabinet
The Society was lucky enough to be able to purchase in 2012 this exciting cabinet, filled with treasures, mostly natural history specimens, collected by Beatrix Potter. The cabinet had never before been seen by the public and it is now on loan to the National Trust and currently on display in the Beatrix Potter Gallery, Hawkshead, Cumbria.
