Portrait of Lancaster
Portrait of Lancaster

Lancaster, the ancient county town of Lancashire, is often known as the City of Spires. Founded by the Romans who built their fort on the River Lune, it developed during the Middle Ages around the Norman castle and later as a port which was closely involved with the slave trade. The Castle, later a crown court and prison where the infamous Pendle witches were tried and executed, is still the centre piece of the town which has a wealth of churches, giving it its common sobriquet. The Georgian custom house on St George's Quay is now the fascinating Maritime Museum, which tells the shameful story of the town's slave trading, while the Ashton Memorial, a landmark from the M6 motorway, stands at the green heart of Williamson Park. Award-winning photographer and writer Jon Sparks was born in Cheshire but has lived in Lancaster since the age of 11 and knows the town well. His is an intimate and affectionate portrait of his home town, through over 140 superb colour images. Jon Sparks has published Lancaster and Lake District calendars, greeting cards and postcards for ten years and supplied the words and pictures for Lake District Moods, published by Halsgrove in 2003 and the winner of the photographic book award in the Outdoor Writers' Guild Awards for Excellence in 2004.
