To commemorate Leeds Castle’s 900th anniversary, we have released a series of photographs entitled ‘Then and Now’.
Using images from the Castle’s archives, we have replicated pictures of past staff and family members using the modern Leeds Castle teams.
One image that was uncovered from the archive was a circa 1900s shot of ‘Leeds Cricket Club’ as it was then – now known as ‘Leeds and Broomfield Cricket Club’.
Our PR Officer invited the current team in to recreate the photograph on the exact same spot on the Castle’s drawbridge and this is the result!
We would like to thank Club President Dave Wratten, Chairman Rick Mustill and 1st XI Captain Max Aitken for helping us make this fantastic photo happen.
The full set of ‘Then and Now’ pictures will be on exhibition in the Castles Queen’s Bedroom until Christmas.
