Treak Cliff Cavern

View of Treak Cliff Cavern

Treak Cliff Cavern is one of only two Blue John mines in the world. Both mines are located beneath Treak Cliff Hill Castleton, Derbyshire, but Treak Cliff Cavern is the older of the two having been established sometime between 1745 and 1750.

Into the Mine at Treak Cliff Cavern

Blue John is semi-precious fluorospar containing yellow purple and blue bands and has been worked for centuries to produce decorative wares and architectural structures including vases and columns, examples of which can be found in the finest stately homes across the UK including Chatsworth and Buckingham Palace.

The original mine closed in 1926, but eventually came under the control of the Harrison family in 1945 who have since developed the mine as a source of Blue John jewellery rock for the production of ornamental pieces.

Wigs On The Green

Wigs On The Green

Portrait Miniatures of Richard & Agnes Hey of Minster Yard York c1836

Established by Cynthia McKinley in 2000, Wigs On The Green specialises in fine portrait miniatures, silhouettes, and small portraits, predominantly from the 18th and 19th centuries. Portraits are selected for their historical interest and character. They are not only by listed artists but also those who painted and drew for their own entertainment and pleasure – true to life portraits, with real character and, often, a pretty face!

This year,  Wigs on the Green will be exhibiting amongst a host of other things, a lovely pair of Portrait Miniatures of Richard and Agnes Hey. Richard Hey (1804-1860) was one of the original 300 fellows of the Royal College of Surgeons and was surgeon to the York County Hospital and Institute to the Blind. Richard Hey also lectured on surgery at the York School of Medicine and was surgeon to the Female Penitentiary. He and his wife Agnes both lived at Minster Yard York.

The portrait of Agnes was painted in 1836 by Noel Norton Carter, a York based artist who had retired from serving in the 101st Regiment of Foot. The portrait of Richard is by a different unknown hand.
