Three letters written by Beatrix Potter are to be auctioned off in the Lake District.
Collectors from around the world are expected to bid for the items, written shortly before her death in 1943.
They reveal the author's love of the area, and the difficulties facing hill farmers before the end of the Second World War.
Paul Crone went to Cockermouth to see the letters.
