The Ancestral Home of Anne Lister
'I have been happier here than anywhere else' - Anne Lister
It was 1834. Homosexual acts were illegal and sexual relationships between women were largely unacknowledged - the word lesbian had not even been coined.
But Anne Lister had no truck with the misogynistic conventions of 19th Century England. She was a businesswoman, entered politics and climbed mountains.
And she adored women, falling passionately in love time and again.
The explicit details of her affairs, recorded in code, shocked those who deciphered them.
The A4 and A3 Prints have different dimensions than this image and so the picture aspect is slightly taller with more sky and the border has been extended accordingly so that it works visually
