On Saturday 6th May 2017 local historians and the extended Barbour family were invited to Bolesworth Castle for the book launch of “Bolesworth and the Barbours”.
The book is written by Diana Barbour and Wendy Bawn and gives the history of the development of the Bolesworth Estate, the Castle and it’s owners and the fascinating story of the Barbour family from 1856 to the present day. Guests to the launch enjoyed ‘breakfast at lunch’ which was inspired by an article in the book written by Pam Payne in the 1930’s; she frequently came to stay at Bolesworth and went hunting with the children.
Copies of the book may be purchased from The Bolesworth Estate, Bolesworth Castle, Tattenhall, Chester, 01829 782210. The price is £20 + P&P. The first 300 copies sold will be in aid of Manchester Cancer Research Centre in memory of Anthony Barbour , who died of pancreatic cancer in 2007.
