Lotherton Hall in the snow, the Peony Priest
3rd December 2010. View of Lotherton Hall in the snow, once home to the Gascoigne family. In the foreground is the 'Peony Priest' a Japanese statue of Sho-Haku. He was named the 'Peony Priest' because of his love for the cultivation of Peonies. He was also known as the Pilgrim Priest as he travelled from town to town preaching. He carries a gourd and is reading from the divine script. The statue was presented to Leeds City Council in the 1950s as part of the Radcliffe Gift. It had previously been on display at Kirby Misperton. On arrival in Leeds it was taken to Temple Newsam before being moved to Lotherton Hall in 1968 when the house and grounds opened to the public.
