Mr Thorpe, The Prophet of Meltham, 1980.

A rare actual portrait, although Mr Thorpe is secondary to the house. Not made up, this man and his house were absolutely real.

We are indebted to the gentleman who contacted us for the alteration in description - for years the family had called this 'The Prophet of Masham', misremembering where John saw him.
