Herdwick sheep were probably introduced by Norse settlers during the Viking invasions (10th-11th c.). The husbandry of the sheep has been a large factor in shaping the culture & terrain of the Lake District. Beatrix Potter was involved with breeding Herdwicks & bequeathed 15 farms to the National Trust. Per her instructions all continue to graze Herdwick flocks.
