More about this scene

Caption for Dunsop Bridge, St Hubert's Church 1921: The pure white marble angel (centre left) is seen by all who pass through the Trough of Bowland. Less well known is the painting on the ceiling above the altar showing Kettledrum, a famous racehorse and winner of the 1861 Derby. Owned by the Townley family, Kettledrum was reared at Stud Farm. A trout hatchery is now on the site of another old stables. Indeed, St Hubert's, the Townleys and horse racing are so traditionally linked that villagers feel that Kettledrum's winnings paid for building the church.
