Philip's lasting legacy to Cumbria 

Some places mean so much that they become a part of you. When you’ve played, picnicked, fallen in love or watched your children grow up somewhere, that place can be found forever in your heart. Philip Crossley-Dawson recalls his treasured memories of Arnside Knott in Cumbria and why he wanted to remember this special place in his will.

" Exmoor won my heart as a schoolgirl. It continues to be my special place. Making a donation and spending time working in this breathtaking landscape have made it even more special. With the help of the National Trust, I hope it will be special for ever, for everyone. "
