‘Spine-tingling’ Beatrix Potter drawings found hidden inside books

Previously unknown drawings by Beatrix Potter have been found during cleaning work at a National Trust property. The four line drawings were found hidden inside books during conservation work at Melford Hall in Suffolk.

Potter, the creator of Peter Rabbit and Mrs Tiggy-Winkle, was a regular visitor to the Long Melford stately home and cousin to the Hyde Parkers who lived there. The images are set to go on display to the public.
