The latest book from ALHG focuses on the fascinating history of this Georgian House. It challenges long held assumptions about who commissioned the original contruction and who lived inside its walls. The emphasis is on the people who lived, worked, met and socialised in the house and not on the artist who's name it bears.
The second part of the book is cellar to attic, photographic and descriptive survey of the house giving an undoctored record of the building in its current state.
Available direct from the author (firstname.lastname@example.org), ALHG (email@example.com) or at ALHG meetings/events. Price £10.

ARNOLD’S MIGHTY ARMY
By Andy McKinnon

When the Great War began in 1914 Arnold was a small town of just over eleven thousand people. During the following five years, over two thousand Arnold men enlisted into the armed forces to fight for King and Country. Almost 300 of them never came back. Of those that did, many suffered for the rest of their lives. After four years of research, Andy McKinnon has found over 1,900 of these men. This book tells their story.
