This area of Yorkshire bears the scars of its industrial past. The population of the South Pennines grew rapidly at the height of the Industrial Revolution and became poor very quickly as the industry fell into decline.
Fortunes were made and lost, often within two or three generations. With the fortunes came the status houses; grand 'Brass Castles', fantastically at odds with their surroundings, were erected and then quickly diappeared.
Some were burnt, some were demolished, some fell slowly into decay.
Some have left ruins; others have disappeared without a trace.
In this exhibition, painter Kate Lycett looks at 10 local lost houses and recreates them from stories, photographs and architectural plans.
The paintings show the houses as they were in their hey-day: Full of light and life.
