Beatrix Potter’s Vision: Woodland Photography Exhibition (June 13th – August 11th)

Atlantic woodlands are one of the richest and most treasured habitats found within the British Isles. These forested ecosystems are teeming with biodiversity and showcase some of the most exceptional examples of lichens, bryophytes, and ferns that the UK has to offer. Come and visit Plantlife’s Photography Exhibition and experience the woodland wonders found across the Lake District, particularly with the free events on offer throughout the summer.

 This exhibition is part of Plantlife’s Looking Out for Small Things project. For more information, please visit
