Steve Jones has been associated with the Leigh Park country estate since boyhood and as a local historian, has built up an intimate knowledge of the estate and local area. In his talk he gave us a very detailed and meticulously researched account of the early history of the Leigh country estate from 1767 when it was originally purchased by Charles Webber. Steve detailed the results of the extensive research that he has conducted into the stories of the subsequent owners. Steve will be giving members of the society a guided tour so that we can see the parts of the estate that remain.
Thank you Steve.
