Joseph Syddall

I visited Chesterfield Museum yesterday to see the work of Joseph Syddall. There is a display of his work and for anyone who hasn’t heard of him he came from Old Whittington and he designed the War Memorial  on Church Street at Old Whittington.

There were two reasons for my visit, I wanted to find out more about his work but also  I  had been advised there was a pencil drawing there of his design. I have taken some pictures, and have also bought some postcards depicting some of his paintings all of which will go on the website oldwhittingtonops.com in the next few days.

Thanks Anne Marie Knowles for letting me know about the exhibition and for anyone passing the Museum I would recommend popping in for a look!
