Visit: Lotherton Hall

It is always a pleasure to go to Lotherton Hall, so beautifully kept by the City of Leeds and retaining its feeling of a family home, which it was for the Gascoigne family until Leeds director Robert Rowe negotiated its transfer to the City in the 1960s, including its fine collections.

The splendid inlaid Armorial table, dated between 1830 and 1844, derives from Mrs Gwendolen Gascoigne's family, the Strutts from Hadzor House in Worcestershire. It has just been acquired by the City of Leeds with a grant from the Art Fund. There is a small display for the table with its history which will be introduced by Curator Adam White. He will lead a guided tour of the Hall.

There are currently three additional exhibitions of interest: Lustreware by Sutton Taylor and Flock Together, a display of fashion in the Costume Gallery and finally a house trail of birds, called Ruffles Feathers.
