In the late 1800s/early 1900s in the village of Barwick-in-Elmet on the outskirts of Leeds a group of artists rented a double fronted cottage on the main street. They were part of the Leeds Savage Club started by Edmund Bogg. Some were young, some were old, and they ranged from painters through to architects. This is the story of their impact on the village. This talk uses illustrations to show the type of work the artists covered and also highlights their 'weird' sense of humour.

About Pauline Robson

I have a BA (Hons) degree in History and am an active local historian. I have been Editor of the Barwick-in-Elmet Historical Society's journal for fourteen years. My main area of historical interest is the Gascoigne Family who lived at Lotherton Hall. I have co-written a book about the Gascoignes and their chauffeur (he outlived all the Gascoignes whom he worked for) entitled 'The Spirit of Lotherton'. I am also an experienced family historian.
