Neil Mullineux – The Leghs of Lyme: How to join the aristocracy

Bridleway near Burbage edge

Snow walking in Lyme Park

Every family has got a few skeletons in the cupboard and the Leghs of Lyme are no exception. After all, in 600 years there are bound to be one or two black sheep (or perhaps a few more.) Join Neil Mullineux in exploring the high points and the low points of the family history since 1346. Who saved the Black Prince? Why was Peter Legh locked up in the Tower of London. How many illegitimate children did Thomas Peter have? Who walked to Windsor for a bet? However, this is not just a titillating history; it's a practical guide to teach you how to join the aristocracy.
