ARNSIDE

What’s in a Name?

Arnside’s name comes from a combination of Old Norse Arni (given name) and sætr (mountain pasture) (WordSense.eu, [s.d.]).

Speaking about…

While on holiday in the Lakes District, the famed English author, illustrator, natural scientist, and conservationist Beatrix Potter tamed a number of wild animals, who became her ever-present companions, as well as pets. In a letter to her friend Winifred Warne in 1905, she wrote: “I have got my Hedgehog here with me too; she enjoys going by train, she is always very hungry when she is on a journey” (National Trust, [s.d.]). The Beatrix Potter Gallery, which is housed in a charming 17th-century house in Arnside, regularly exhibits examples of Beatrix’s original drawings and watercolours.
