Rathmell Vicarage circa 1864

This fascinating photograph of the incumbent of Rathmell Parish, one Abel Chapman, seated in his vicarage garden with family and friends, was sent to us by Theo Pardoen from The Netherlands. Some of the people in the picture are relatives of his (surname West), who had followed Rev Chapman from his previous post in Salisbury.
