ITEMS that once belonged to the Spencer Stanhope family are set to go on display for the first time in a number of years after a donation was made to Cannon Hall Museum.
Donated by James Fraser, a descendant of the family, the group of items offer an insight into the lives of the Spencer Stanhopes.
An exhibition will run from May 14 until October 29 with many portraits of the family on display for all to see.
Coun Tim Cheetham, cabinet spokesperson for place, said: “The history of the Spencer Stanhope family is fascinating and to have objects on display linked to key moments in their lives really bring the past to life.
“We would like to thank James for his generosity in donating the objects which will be seen by thousands of visitors each year and add to the museum’s outstanding collection of art and objects.”
