Photos of Coleorton people and places

The Heritage Group has a collection of several hundred photographs, both historical and contemporary.  Unfortunately many of them are not dated and not all details of the subject matter are recorded.  This applies especially to old group photographs, a few of which are attached below.  If you could provide the names of any of the people on the photographs and also, of course, if you could contribute additional photographs for us to copy, especially old ones, please contact webmaster@coleorton.org.uk

John Constable visited Coleorton Hall and sketched in the grounds. The sketches he made of the cenotaph were made up into the finished piece 'Cenotaph to Joshua Reynolds', which is on display in the National Gallery in London. Other sketches include two of the memorial stone dedicated to Richard Wilson.
