Denys James 'BB' Watkins-Pitchford
BB Watkins, or (to give him his full name) Denys James 'BB' Watkins MBE was a British naturalist, author and illustrator who wrote under the pseudonym 'BB'. Born in Lamport, Northamptonshire in 1905, BB was home-schooled. During his childhood, he spent his time wandering through the fields, and developed a love of the outdoors.
This page includes information from the official BB Society. Since this is the Welford Village Website, it seemed sensible to include information about BB's time in our village. For more information about the writer, please see the BB Society's page, available here.
There is also another nice site, which documents the making of a film about BB available here, which features a few photos of BB's Welford home. The photos are available here.
