This is a picture of Platt Fields 200 years ago. The horse probably lived in the stables of Platt Hall when it was the home of the Worsley family. You can see the Hall in the distance behind the brook and the pagoda-style building on the left. Sadly, the pagoda is no longer there.
This painting was chosen as one of two for our Collections chat about the history of the Hall and park on 9 July 2020.
