Leftwich Hall Painting

Members of the LHA recently purchased the original painting of Leftwich Hall by renowned artist Robert Leftwich that he painted in the 1880s.  Reproductions are available (see flyer below).  His description:

The picture I have painted was partly taken from a slight pen and ink sketch in the possession of Mr. Thomas Dean, tenant of Leftwich Hall Farm from 1827 to 1879, and from surveys and sketches I took in 1880, when all that remained of the Hall and castle was the stone covered ground and parts of the moat, one of which was 100 feet by 40 feed and 8 feet deep, another 80 by 80 and not quite so deep.  In the park were some beech trees about fifteen feet circumference in the boles, all that was left of an old avenue.  I showed the Clerk of Northwich Castle Church, which is about two miles from the Hall, the view Imade from the sketch survey and he recognized it with great pleasure, as he had lived there all his life; was an old man.
