Lovely article about Herdwick sheep in the Lake District and their Norse origins.   Yew Tree Farm near Coniston must be one of the most photogenic farms in the Lakes.  It was used as the location for Beatrix Potter’s home, Hill Top, in the film Miss Potter.   Anyone visiting the nearby beauty spot of Tarn Hows is bound to come across Herdwick sheep and Belted Galloway cattle grazing the fells.
